Parent and Family Resources

Welcome to the Center for Student Assistance and Advocacy  

The college experience may result in excitement, stress, and confusion all at the same time. It is common for students to feel overwhelmed as they adjust to being on their own and in their new environment.


We encourage you to keep communication lines open with your student and be informed about the many resources at Loyola. This site is created to help you help your student. Take a moment to browse through the information, and if you have questions or if you prefer to talk with someone, don’t hesitate to contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 773.508.8840.


Report a Concern

The best way for us to help your student is to report your concern as soon as possible. If you have an emergency, please call Campus Safety at 773.508.SAFE (7233) or Chicago emergency services at 911. All other student matters can be referred to the Office of the Dean of Students by submitting a report through the CSAA homepage:
