The Office of Sustainability's goal is to support the faculty, staff, students and alumni in making the University a leader in the Chicago region, and internationally among Jesuit institutions.

Sustainability at Orientation 

To support our mission of sustainability, at orientation, students and families will learn more about sustainability initiatives and infrastructure via educational sessions, small group discussions, campus walking tours, and a resource fair. Students will receive a reusable Cupanion water bottle at check-in to use at orientation and throughout their time at Loyola. Every time students' refill their water bottle, Cupanion gives clean water to a person in need. Very limited handouts are provided at orientation, as students and guests will be directed to websites to access information and resources. Students and families will also participate in a zero-waste picnic to conclude their orientation experience, where the orientation leaders will provide tips on composting and recycling.
