All sophomores and juniors planning to live off campus during the 2017-2018 academic year are required to complete the Online Off-Campus Living Seminar.


All residential students transitioning to live off-campus are required to complete the Off-Campus Living Seminar.  This seminar is intended to educate students about the process of choosing a roommate, finding an apartment, signing a lease, and addressing apartment issues.  This requirement is designed to prepare you for knowing your rights and/or managing challenges that may arise when living off-campus.

Be on the lookout for access to our online Off-Campus Living Seminar this spring. 

I'm Graduating or Studying Abroad - Do I Need to Complete the Seminar?

Students currently studying abroad or plan to study abroad and plan to reside off-campus for all or part of the academic year are required to complete the seminar.

Students graduating in May of 2018 are not required to complete the seminar. Graduating students may still receive messages as they have not yet registered for graduation. However, conduct flags will not be issued to graduating students.

Loyola University Chicago requires all non-residential students to update their "Local Off-Campus" address in LOCUS by the first day of each term. This information helps the University to respond in the event of an emergency. It also aids the University in addressing complaints regarding off-campus residences. Failure to provide the University with a valid local address may be processed as a violation of University policy. Providing false or inaccurate information may also be processed as a violation of University policy. Address updates must be completed in the LOCUS system.

Individual meetings can be scheduled with an OCSL staff member. Staff will meet with students individually or in small groups to answer questions and discuss concerns about their rights and responsibilities living off-campus and/or landlord issues. To schedule an appointment e-mail goodneighbor@luc.edu or call 773.508.8660 to talk with a staff member.
