Loyola University Chicago

Residence Life

Mission | Vision | Values


In partnership with our residents, the Department of Residence Life
enhances the Loyola Experience by providing
safe and supportive living communities
where students can engage with others, explore their personal identity,
and develop a deeper understanding of their impact on the world.


By providing excellent customer service and
fostering diverse and inclusive communities in well-maintained buildings,
Residence Life will be the preferred housing choice for Loyola students.
Through our innovative practices, living on campus will
become an integral part of the educational experience and
help prepare students to create meaningful change in the world.
