Residence Life

Simpson Living-Learning Center


Simpson Hall is centrally located at the corner of Sheridan and Winthrop. All floors have two student lounges complete with cable TV and furniture. Residents have access to 8 kitchens throughout the building, complete with a stovetop, oven, and sink. Rooms, lounges, and hallways are carpeted. Laundry facilities are located in the building on each residential floor. Each room has a unique layout different from other rooms on the floor. Double rooms range between 180–255 square feet.

Simpson Hall is home to a vibrant community of first-year students. Residents frequently spend time in the floor lounges to do homework, watch their favorite TV shows, and attend programs planned by their Resident Assistants. The Simpson Multipurpose Room, located across from the Department of Residence Life, is where students study together and receive tutoring services throughout the year. The Simpson Hall Council is an exciting leadership opportunity available to residents of the building. Hall Council plans events related to resident interests and philanthropy. In recent years, Simpson Hall Council has planned a mug decorating event, a March Madness competition, and a fundraiser for Loyola’s Magis Scholars Fund. Simpson Hall RAs and LCAs also plan exciting programs to connect residents to Loyola and the greater Chicago community throughout the year based on milestones of the Loyola Experience.

Simpson Hall is named after Mr. William B. Simpson and his wife, Mrs. Marilyn M. Simpson, both great contributors and supporters of Loyola University Chicago. As a result of their continuous and generous support, the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) also has a lecture room named after Mr. and Mrs. Simpson. Mr. and Mrs. Simpson were also honored with the Honorary Loyola Alumni Award in the 1980s. Simpson Hall opened in 1991.  You can see a tour of Simpson Hall here.
