Green Rooftops

Loyola has more green roofs than any other college in the midwest. They can be found on all three campuses:‌

Water Tower Campus

Lake Shore Campus

Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood Campus

The Quinlan roof resembles a native Illinois Prairie in order to provide habitat for wildlife like pollinating insects and birds. 

While most of these buildings incorporated green rooftop design as part of new construction on campus, a green rooftop was added to the Mundelein Hall building (a historical landmark building) during a 2010-2012 renovation project, showing that Loyola is committed to both building green and renovating green.
