Visiting Loyola
We welcome visitors to Loyola University Chicago Mondays through Fridays between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., and on Saturdays at the Lake Shore Campus between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. We recommend that you schedule your visit by making an appointment at least two weeks prior to your intended visit date.

During your tour, you can meet with representatives from Undergraduate Admission and the Office of Student Financial Assistance; tour the Lake Shore Campus; and during regular class days, sit in on a class and meet with faculty.

Campus tours are available Mondays through Saturday at the Lake Shore Campus and in a freshman residence hall. Water Tower Campus tours take place Monday through Friday. Overnight visits can be scheduled for seniors on a space availability basis.

Applying for admission
Since we review applications on a rolling admission basis, we recommend that you apply for admission to Loyola as early as possible in your senior year of high school, or as soon as you know that you’d like to transfer. It’s best to apply no later than the deadlines (listed below). Applications completed after those dates may receive consideration, as space permits.

Please refer to the Application for Undergraduate Admission and Scholarships for complete details and instructions on how to apply. You can complete and submit Loyola’s electronic application; to do so, visit www.luc.edu/undergrad.

For an application or more information, contact the Undergraduate Admission Office at 312-915-6500 or 800-262-2373 in the U.S.; or e-mail admission@luc.edu; or visit www.luc.edu/undergrad.
