Welcome First Year + Transfer Students

Welcome to Loyola University Chicago! We look forward to welcoming you home this fall. Your first year at Loyola is bound to be exciting and living on-campus can help you make the most of your Loyola Experience.
In order to secure your space on-campus for the 2019-2020 academic year, you will need to complete your Housing Application/Contract. Beginning February 1, the Application/Contract will be available through NextStop about 24-hours after submitting your enrollment deposit. There is no additional deposit for housing.
Interested in joining a First Year Learning Community (LC)?
You'll be able to indicate your interest on your application;
after your application is submitted you can rank your LC preferences.
First Year Priority Application Deadline  |  May 1
As long as you complete all steps of the application process by this deadline, your chances of being assigned to your preferred building/room type are the same as anyone else who applied within this timeframe. Students who already applied before May 1 will no longer be able to change their aplication preferences after May 1.
Transfer Priority Application Deadline  |  June 1
Transfer students may live in any of our upper class residence halls depending on availability. Transfer students are assigned on a rolling basis throughout the summer as spaces become available.
Assignment information will be available in NextStop this summer.
We'll email you when it's ready.
Need help? Contact us or stop by our office in Simpson Hall.
We're glad you chose Loyola. Welcome home.
