Loyola University Chicago Orientation

The entire LUC community is excited to welcome you!

First-year and transfer students, Loyola University Chicago Orientation (LUCO) will be your opportunity to connect with your classmates and begin building community at Loyola. Family members and guests, LUCO will serve as a time to learn about your student's transition to academic and student life at Loyola. By actively participating in Orientation, you will learn about the many resources, opportunities, and services Loyola provides to support your academic and personal success, including learning about which classes will help you achieve your academic goals. LUCO will introduce you to the people, values, and traditions that will enrich the Loyola Experience.

For students starting at Loyola in January 2022, Orientation is a primarily online experience that begins with the Welcome Session on Tuesday, December 14 and continues until classes begin in January. Orientation includes a required academic advising appointment and a required small group discussion with an Orientation Leader (OL), as well LUC Resource Webinars and a Lake Shore Campus Visit Day.  

Registration for Orientation events begins on Monday, November 29 at 10:00AM CT. Students can register for their required Orientation components and the optional Lake Shore Campus Visit Day on their Student Portal. Students, parents, and family members can register for the Welcome Session and LUC Resource Webinars here.
