Francis Hall- New Residence Hall Coming Fall 2020

Coming Fall 2020, we will have a new residence hall, Francis Hall!  Francis Hall is named after the first Jesuit Pope, Pope Francis.  This building will boast many new amenities for use of the students residing there as well as for members of the campus community.  Among the many features of this building, Francis Hall will host a new cafe, the Honors program offices, a multipurpose room, smart classrooms, and will host Loyola Chicago's first Faculty in Residence Program.
Francis Hall will have approximately 280 beds for first-year honors students and about 100 beds for non-honors sophomore students all in suite-style housing.
Check back during the year for more information including room layouts, room rates, and construction progress photos.
Francis Hall will be located at 6314 North Winthrop Avenue.
