Loyola University Chicago uses a mandatory Direct Deposit payroll system. It is the 'no hassle' way to deal with your pay. Please insure that you have established a savings or checking account with a financial institution to comply with this requirement.

  • When you are first hired, you will need to complete the Direct Deposit Authorization Form (included in the new hire packet) and attach a voided check to validate the ABA or Transit number of your bank.

Once the Direct Deposit is established, Loyola will electronically transfer your pay to the financial institution of your choice when paychecks are processed. You will have on-line access to all the detail of the deposit via the Employee Self Service Portal including: the name of the financial institution and account number where the pay was deposited, all types and amounts of deductions made from your pay [i.e.: state and federal income tax, etc], gross and net pay for the pay period and year to date. 


Chapels are located at all campuses and are open during working hours for quiet prayer or meditation. Mass is said daily and special services are held periodically.


Loyola provides a shuttle service between the Lake Shore and Water Tower campuses. The shuttle schedule and information on staging of these buses can be found at LUC.edu/transportation/shuttlebus.

  • Full-time students are eligible for a CTA UPASS.
  • The CTA UPASS is your ticket to unlimited riding aboard CTA buses and trains. It offers full-time students unlimited use and unparalleled opportunity to take advantage of everything Chicago has to offer. No cash is needed. It's your connection to shopping, sports events, social activities, art and entertainment centers or anything else that grabs your attention.
    • If you have not picked up your CTA UPASS visit the Dean of Students Office in Centennial Forum, room 100 at the LSC or in the Student Affairs Office, 25 E. Pearson, rm 101, WTC. You will need to bring your valid Student ID.
