Loyola University Chicago

Information Commons


Welcome to the Information Commons! The IC is the ideal place to learn, share, connect, create and relax here on Loyola University Chicago's Lake Shore Campus.

A joint project of the University Libraries and Information Technology Services, the Information Commons is founded on the philosophy of the three C's: Collaboration, Connectivity and Community. Thus, we offer spaces and technology for group study and team learning; high-speed Internet connectivity including wireless; and comfortable spaces for serious work, reading and relaxation.

Our 21st century building offers not only the latest computer technology (both PC and Mac platforms), but a team of library and computer experts to help students, faculty and staff fulfill their information needs 119 hours every week of the Fall and Spring Semesters.

The beautiful building offers you stunning views as it overlooks Lake Michigan, but the real value of this great facility is its role in fulfilling the university's educational mission. The Information Commons seeks to bring teachers, researchers and learners together to find, evaluate, analyze and use information in all its forms to create new knowledge and a unique learning experience.

Please come to the Information Commons and share in the excitement.
