First-year and Transfer students, Loyola University Chicago Orientation (LUCO) will be your opportunity to connect with your future 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, and the many resources and opportunities available to you and them.

During 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. In order to best prepare for Orientation, please review our Before Orientation page.

For students starting at Loyola in spring 2021, Orientation will be a fully online experience that begins on Monday, December 7 and continues through Friday, January 15. We'll officially begin with the Online Orientation Welcome Session on Monday, December 7 at 4:00PM CT. Students will need to register for their required orientation components and optional programming. Registration for required online LUCO events will be available through your student portal starting on Monday, November 23 at 10:00AM CT.
