Lake Shore Campus Main Address Changing
June 3, 2009
As of June 1, the University is changing the official main address for the Lake Shore Campus to 1032 W. Sheridan Road. The former address, 6525 N. Sheridan Road, once marked the location of the central receiving office to the University, but that building is now a maintenance shop and the address is confusing to vendors and other campus visitors.
1032 W. Sheridan Road is the first entrance and one-way road between the Quinlan Life Sciences Center and the Mundelein Center. This new address will lead visitors to the main parking structure.
While the address change will be effective immediately, it will have little effect on Loyola faculty, staff, and students. Individuals will still receive their mail and deliveries, even if they are postmarked to the 6525 N. Sheridan Road address. The student post office has a separate address at 6431 N. Sheridan Road.
We know the old 6525 address is printed on a number of documents and forms throughout the University, but we encourage you to not throw anything away. Please use your entire inventory before ordering new materials with the new address, including business cards, letterhead, and envelopes. However, if you are planning to re-order supplies soon, please make sure all documents reflect the new 1032 location. We will also immediately change the Web site to reflect the 1032 address and will begin to update on-campus signage and other marketing materials, as well.
Please encourage all faculty and staff—especially those who interact on a daily basis with visitors—to inform the Loyola community about the new address.
This change will improve the experience visitors have when they first arrive at Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus. It is the natural location that comes up when you use a GPS system and flows people into the main parking structure easily.
Below are some answers to clarify any questions you might have. For further clarification, please contact Phil Kosiba, VP, facilities, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Bill Sherry, superintendent, facilities, at email@example.com.

LSC Main Address Change Questions and Answers
How does this address change affect me?
If you are planning to order new business cards, letterhead, or forms of any kind that contain the old address, we ask that you make sure you change the address to read 1032 W. Sheridan Road. However, please note that you should use all materials with the old address until you run out.
In the future, please provide all visitors with the new address when directing them to the main entrance of the Lake Shore Campus. This will not be a major change, as most people are already directed to the 1032 address as the main entrance and GPS systems bring you there anyway.
