Building Access Updates

November 19, 2020

Dear Faculty and Staff,

With the end of the fall semester in sight, we wanted to provide you with some important updates and information about Loyola University Chicago’s ongoing campus operations. As you may recall, November 22 is the last day that classes will be held in-person this semester. Starting on November 23, all Fall 2020 classes will move fully online and student IDs to classroom buildings will be deactivated. January Term (J-Term)—which runs from January 4 to January 15, 2021—will be held completely online, as well.

Because of these adjustments, we've decided to modify hours of service for various campus buildings between November 23 and the beginning of the Spring 2021 semester. This includes but is not limited to:

  • The Halas Rec Center and Loyola's Student Centers—Damen and Terry—will close on November 23 and will reopen during the week of January 11.
  • Libraries will remain open through the end of Finals (on December 12) with modified hours. During J-Term, all library services will be offered online. Libraries will reopen fully on January 19, the first day of the spring term.
  • Certain campus spaces will remain open without interruption, including Madonna della Strada Chapel and the Wellness Center.

A detailed list of changes and hours can be found here. If you plan to spend any time on campus before the spring semester, we encourage you to click through.

Going forward, we also recognize that faculty and staff will need to stop by their offices sporadically to pick up materials, collect mail, make copies, or use a scanner. We will continue to provide periodic access to restricted buildings on an established schedule so that Campus Safety can staff and/or monitor buildings with video surveillance. Please note: This access is only intended for short visits.

Anyone accessing campus for any reason should make sure they complete our Symptom Checker before arriving each day. Please familiarize yourself with our Return to Campus website, as well, to learn more about Loyola's Required Personal Safety Practices and workplace guidelines, which we’ve implemented to protect the health and safety of our entire community.
