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, 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.
