Apply for Housing

We have housing available for students for the Spring 2016 Semester! Students who live off campus or at home who want to move on campus, students who are currently abroad and will return to Chicago, and newly admitted First Year and Transfer students are all welcome to complete a Spring Housing Application.

Complete your Housing Application through your LOCUS account beginning Monday, November 2. Be sure to complete all sections of the application, including your building and room type preferences, roommate preference, and meal plan choice. YOUR APPLICATION IS NOT COMPLETE IF YOU DID NOT CLICK FINISH. Need help with this? Stop by our offices in Simpson Living Learning Center, room 107 or give us a call at 773.508.3300.

Review the step-by-step instructions for completing your application: Spring 2016 Housing Application

No prepayment is required for Spring Applicants.

Complete your housing application by Friday, December 4. Completing your application early may increase your chance of being assigned to one of your top preferences. Your final housing assignment and roommate information will be sent to you via Loyola e-mail no later than Friday, December 18. After that, assignments will be e-mailed on a rolling basis as applications are received. Students will move in for Spring 2016 on Sunday, January 17.

Review information about the housing and meal plan rates. Housing rates are listed for the full academic year, so new spring applicants would only be charged for the spring semester.

On  your Spring 2016 Housing Application, you can enter information for your preferred roommate. You can enter the information of any current Loyola student, including students who are already living on campus for the academic year. When we receive your request, we will verify that your friend has an open space in their room, as well as verify that the roommate request is mutual. If the request is mutual, and there is an available space we will do our best to make sure you are placed there.

Your friend should request you as their preferred roommate on the Housing Application. Make sure that they have your information so they can complete the roommate request. When we receive your friends' housing application, we will contact you to verify that the roommate request is mutual. If the request is mutual and we have an available space in your room, we will do our best to make sure your friend is placed there.

We do not publish lists of available rooms, but in past years we have had a wide range of available spaces across campus. When you submit your Spring Housing Application, we will review your preferences. You should only list rooms on your preferences that you want to live in. We will do our best to find a space that best matches your stated preferences.
