Grad Student Housing
Congratulations on your decision to pursue your graduate/professional studies at Loyola University Chicago. As you prepare to move to Chicago, we want to offer the following information about housing in an effort to make your transition as seamless as possible.
We offer graduate housing in Baumhart Hall, located at the Water Tower Campus, just steps away from Michigan Avenue. If you are interested in this option, you may apply online through Loyola's LOCUS system (once you have a login and password) by using the Residence Life link. The first round of assignments will be made in May with notification going out the first week in June.
To learn more about Baumhart Hall, visit Residence Life or call 773.508.3300.
If you are new to Chicago, it can be intimidating trying to find housing. Here are a few resources to help make things easier.
- Lakeside Management manages a number of properties in the Rogers Park and Edgewater neighborhoods. The university has established a relationship with this firm and we feel completely comfortable referring you to them for your housing needs.
- Student Space is a free service for graduate students to help them find housing in Chicago. They provide a service that helps graduate students with 24/7 customer service that saves you time, money and the hassle of finding housing in a new environment. They know everyone has a budget and wants to be near school or by public transportation that gets them there. For those that can't visit, they can help you sign a lease remotely. They are not associated with Loyola but are a free service to you. They have access to thousands of options, student specials and transportation/neighborhood information. Once they hear from you, they can go over your criteria and everything that is important to you to start the process.
- Off-Campus Student Life can serve as an additional resource as you begin your housing search. The staff can offer valuable advice and tips relating to looking for an apartment and signing a lease. Further, they can provide information about living in the city of Chicago.
