Residence Life

Apply for Housing

We are excited to have you join the Residence Life Community at Loyola! We believe that living in our residence halls and apartments contributes to a more holistic and more vibrant college experience.  We are now accepting applications for Fall 2015.

When Viewing our Living Options, please take advantage of our Living Comparison Guide for Freshmen and Transfer Students

Rising second year, junior, senior, and graduate students can apply for on-campus housing through LOCUS.  New students can access the Housing Application through the Next Stop portal.  Log in and click on the Residence Life link to find the application information.  You will tell us your building and room type preferences, tell us about your living habits, choose a meal plan, and you will sign your contract.  You can also let us know if you have a roommate you already want to live with, but you will need that person's Loyola e-mail address or ID number.

For students interested in requesting in exemption to our residency requirement you can submit a request for exemption.
