Information about Stay in Chicago

Chicago offers a rich and unique American experience that will be sure to entertain participants when the Colloquium is not in session. Loyola University Chicago at the Water Tower Campus, the Colloquium’s central hub, is located at the heart of Chicago’s bustling Magnificent Mile. The famous Water Tower shopping center and Lake Shore drive are mere steps from the University’s downtown campus. The Colloquium’s hotels are centered near enticing restaurants as well as the city’s excellent public transportation system. Participants will be sure to enjoy the river walk or lake front path, less than a half of a mile from the conference’s center.
