  • Admission Presentation
  • Is this your first visit to Loyola? The admission presentation is a great introduction to what Loyola has to offer you. Attend an informative overview of Loyola and the admission and financial aid process given by admission staff. Presentations are offered two times a day, and if you are unable to visit during the week, we offer presentations on most Saturday mornings. The 45 minute presentation is followed by a tour of the Lake Shore Campus. Click HERE to register.

  • Individual Admission Counselor Appointments
  • Sit down with a trained admission professional to discuss your future goals, life at Loyola, and any other questions you may have. Appointments are offered at 10:00am, 12:00pm, 2:00pm, and 4:00pm Monday-Friday at the Lake Shore Campus Undergraduate Admission Office.

    Click HERE to register for an individual appointment as well as a tour of either the Lake Shore or Water Tower Campus led by a current Loyola student. Individual Appointments will become available starting in November.

  • Campus Tours
  • With a current Loyola student as your guide, explore Loyola's Lake Shore Campus including academic facilities, the Damen Student Center, the Klarchek Information Commons, and a freshman residence hall. A tour is included in the admission presentation, but you can also sign up for the tour when you register for an individual appointment, specialized visit, or shadow visit.

  • Classroom Visit
  • Step into an introductory level class on either the Lake Shore or Water Tower Campus, and experience Loyola’s classroom environment first hand. Sign up for a classroom visit through the Special Visit Request Form, and please include any preferences for a particular academic area. Classes will be closed November 23-25 and the last day of class will be December 9.

  • Shadow a Student
  • Ever wonder what it is like to be a Rambler? Allow one of our students to show you! Follow a current student for a half day to experience what a typical class day is like. You will have the opportunity to attend classes and eat a meal with this student as well as schedule a meeting with an admission counselor or attend a tour.

    Shadow visits will take place Monday-Friday during the morning. Please request a visit 2 weeks in advance. If you have any questions about the program, you can contact us at or 773-508-3904.

    Shadow Student Request Form

  • Special Visit Request
  • We recognize that often times when you are visiting campus, you may want to do multiple things or see something specific to make the most of your visit. So let us know!

    The special request form will allow you to make your request and will also allow you to add any of the other visit features mentioned above (except the Student Shadow Program), so you don’t need to schedule them separately.

    In order to accommodate your request, please provide your request at least two weeks in advance.


Water Tower Campus

  • Campus Tours
  • With a current Loyola student as your guide, visit academic facilities, the Terry Student Center, and more at the Water Tower Campus. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a view of a residence hall room on this tour. Tours depart from the Undergraduate Admission Office in the Schreiber Center, Room 221.

Visiting Both the Lake Shore and Water Tower Campuses

We encourage you to visit both campuses, especially if your areas of interest also include majors that are at located downtown: Schools of Education, Social Work, Business Administration, and Communication, as well as majors in computer science and criminal justice. We have Loyola shuttle passes available in the Undergraduate Admission Office for our visiting students and families. The shuttles will not be running November 23-25 and will stop for Winter Break on December 16.

Loyola strives for its campus to be accessible to all individuals. If you need disability-related accommodations, please contact us.
