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 recommend the itineraries below for students and families who would like to visit both campuses during their visit:

1. 10am Lake Shore visit (10am-12pm) followed by 2:15pm Water Tower Tour (2:15pm-3:00pm)

2. 12pm Water Tower tour (12pm-12:45pm) followed by Lake Shore visit (2pm-4pm)

During the fall and spring semester when classes are in session we have Loyola shuttle passes available in the Undergraduate Admission Office for our visiting students and families. If you are visiting during the summer or on a day when the shuttle is not running we are happy to provide driving or public transportation directions between the two campuses.

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