Open House Chicago

Loyola Opens its Doors for Chicago Architectural Foundation

In celebration of old and new, Loyola University will be a featured host for Chicago Architectural Foundation’s annual Open House Chicago event.

Open House Chicago is a free public event that offers behind-the-scenes access to over 150 buildings across Chicago, and welcomes up to 25,000 guests during the weekend of October 13-14. For this year’s event, Loyola will be providing tours of three buildings on campus, including its recently renovated:

  • Mundelein Center for the Fine and Performing Arts
  • LEED silver certified Information Commons, and
  • The historic, Art-Deco Madonna della Strada Chapel

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see Mundelein’s new state-of-the-art theater, dance, and music spaces, the eco-friendly, climate controlled “smart-rooms” of the Information Commons, or the ornamental detailing and historic catacombs of Madonna della Strada.

Specific tour dates and times for these featured sites are as follows:

  • Mundelein Center Oct 13 & 14th: Saturday 3:30-5pm & Sunday 9am-5pm with tours provided every half hour
  • Information Commons Oct 13th, 14th Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 10am-5pm
  • Madonna della Strada, October 13th, 9am-5pm.


Join us on October 13th and 14th in celebrating the new architectural developments and the antique buildings that beautify our scenic Lake Shore Campus!
