Illinois House Act

The Illinois Public Act 102-0083 requires all institutions of higher education to designate a staff member as the Housing and Opportunities that are Useful for Students’ Excellence (HOUSE) liaison to assist students who are experiencing homelessness.  At Loyola University Chicago, the HOUSE Liaison is Dr. Will Rodriguez, Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students.  

Students experiencing housing insecurity or students who know of a peer who needs help with housing may contact Dr. Rodriguez or any staff member in the Office of the Dean of Students by submitting a CARE Referral.  You can also reach the office at (773)508-8840 or by sending an email to deanofstudents@luc.edu.
