Loyola University Chicago's Lake Shore campus offers its students state-of-the-art facilities along the shores of Lake Michigan.

A Transformative Undergraduate Education

Founded in 1870, Loyola University Chicago offers you a world-class education and an undergraduate experience that will prepare you to live an extraordinary life.

With campuses on the lakefront and in the heart of downtown, Loyola University Chicago has deep roots in the city of Chicago. We’re surrounded by rich cultural resources and are steps away from thousands of internship and networking opportunities at Fortune 500 companies and fast-growing startups. And our reach extends beyond Chicago—with our study abroad opportunities and campuses in Rome, Bejing, and Vietnam, we’re truly a global institution.

We offer more than 80 majors and 80 minors, so we’re certain that you’ll find your program here. But we're not just preparing you for a career. Through our Core Curriculum, we’ll challenge you to learn broadly, to think critically, to serve generously, to lead with integrity, and to respect diversity. While the students, faculty, and staff who make up our University community come from all faiths and ethnic and economic backgrounds, we all embrace the common purpose of building a better society.
