Chicago Map

With 77 diverse and distinguishable neighborhoods, Chicago can provide a unique experience for each visitor.

Welcome to Chicago! To assist you in navigating the city, we have developed a resource guide to highlight different hotels, restaurants, and attractions that you can check out during your weekend here. We can also share the Ramblin' Around Guide which was created by the Department of Civic Engagement, the Rogers Park Business Alliance, and Edgewater Chamber of Commerce. In addition during Family Weekend some local restaurants are offering discounts for families who show their Family Weekend wristbands:

  • Simian Thai and Sushi will give a 10% off when people spend $10 or more (cash, dine in only)
  • Metropolis Coffee will give Family Weekend guests a 20% discount
  • Pearl's Southern Comfort restaurant will offer a 20% discount. Reservations are appreciated at 773-754-7419
  • Edge of Sweetness is offering a 15% discount (custom cakes not included)
  • Bar Roma (downtown) will offer a free dessert to Family Weekend participants who make a reservation for a meal there. 

While our intent is to share accurate and updated information, Loyola University Chicago does not take responsibility for experiences or changes that may occur. We will do our best to update this document to ensure an exciting stay. With 77 diverse and distinguishable neighborhoods, Chicago can provide a unique experience for each visitor. Have fun exploring the vibrant and fascinating city of Chicago!

Parking

Lake Shore Campus map shows the locations of the parking garages and campus buildings. 

We have two parking garages at the Lake Shore Campus that Family Weekend guests are welcome to use during Family Weekend at no charge. The parking lots close at 2 a.m., therefore overnight parking is not allowed. The gates for both garages will be up during Family Weekend on Saturday September 25, and on Sunday, September 26 until the end of Family Weekend events.

Please note that space in the garage is limited so people are encouraged to use public transportation when possible. There is street parking in the neighborhood as well.
