Lake Shore Campus, Loyola’s main residential campus, is located in the Rogers Park neighborhood on Chicago’s North Side, minutes from downtown Chicago and Loyola's Water Tower Campus. Its setting along the shores of Lake Michigan helps make Loyola one of the most picturesque universities in Chicago.
The Lake Shore Campus is home to the College of Arts and Sciences (the largest of the University's 11 schools and colleges), the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing, and many Graduate School programs. The School of Education also offers academic courses, programs, and student advising at the Lake Shore Campus.
The campus is comprised of more than 40 buildings, including:
Loyola is the only university in Chicago with a rail station named for it. The Loyola stop on the CTA’s elevated (“L”) Red Line connects Loyola to the heart of downtown and acts as a bridge between the University’s two city campuses.
Rogers Park is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country. The neighborhood around the University offers a wide variety of ethnic restaurants and shops from all corners of the globe. The Lake Shore Campus also offers students full access to the lake through neighborhood beaches and lakeside parks. The campus is just a few blocks north of Lincoln Park, with bike paths, athletic fields, and other amenities stretching all the way to downtown.
