Loyola University Chicago

Student Government of Loyola Chicago


There are six committees in the legislative branch. They are:

As liaisons to academic administrative officials at the university, the Academic Affairs Committee works to ensure that students are receiving the best and most inclusive education Loyola can offer them.

The Academic Affairs Committee deals with any academic area pertaining to students, including the undergraduate schools/college, the libraries, research services, global affairs (study abroad programs), academic services (advising, career center, Center for Experiential Learning, Core Curriculum, the Honors Program, and Office of Registration and Records), and online classes.

SGLC Allocations Committee is a group within SGLC Senate that review proposals from student organizations and make recommendations to the Senate on allocating money to fund student-run events around campus.

The Student Activity Fund is guided by Jesuit principles, which challenge students to strive for excellence, become people in service to others, foster out-of-classroom learning, develop talents through discovery and reflection, and be concerned for each person. To this end, the numerous opportunities for interaction and involvement among students, faculty, and staff provided by the Student Activity Fund support the intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual development of each member of the Loyola community.

For more information on how to get funding for your student org event, please contact the Allocations Committee at allocations@luc.edu or visit the Center for Student engagement (CSE) Website.


The facilities and transportation committee deals with all issues and complaints regarding facilities and transportation on campus. ‌

The committee works with all buildings on campus with the exception of:

  • Residence halls
  • Dining halls
  • The Wellness Center
  • Campus Safety Offices/Structures

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why do the Cudahy Library doors remain closed?
According to the Associate Dean of the Library, Fred Barnhart, they evaluated the benefits and drawbacks of a single entrance and came to the conclusion that it is more secure to maintain a single entrance, but also provides opportunities for service efficiency, along with a more aesthetically pleasing main entrance to the University Libraries at the Lake Shore Campus. The single entrance also minimizes the impact of foot traffic on the Cudahy Library and providing a better research and study environment in the Cudahy Library. Since the IC entrance is also in a more central location, access is improved from other buildings on campus, to the El station, and to the north side of campus.

Why can’t the shuttles leave the Lakeshore Campus when they are full?
Because the shuttles are not allowed to wait at the Water Tower Campus downtown (per Chicago law), the shuttles always arrive at the Water Tower Campus, unload, load, and leave right away. If the shuttles were to stand at the Water Tower Campus for any more than a few minutes, they would be told to move by the police or Loyola could possibly be ticketed. As a result of this, shuttles need to run on a schedule so that only one shuttle arrives at the downtown campus at a time and can leave with a full load of passengers quickly. We know that it can be frustrating to see a full shuttle sitting for ten minutes waiting to leave, but this is the only way that Loyola can avoid possibly stiff fines and keep a regular schedule departing from the Water Tower Campus.  We however are working with Transportation to determine if there is a more effective way to make the schedule more efficient.

The Justice Committee serves to bring forth issues pertaining to its mission. The Committee serves as an advocate and liaison between the array of social justice, diversity, and environmental groups on campus and Loyola's administrators. In addition, as part of the mission, the committee maintains a strong bond with the university's Campus Ministry.

The Residents, Commuters, and Dining Committee acts as a liaison Residence Life, Commuter Life, and Loyola Dining administration and students.

Within this context, we attempt to advocate on behalf of the opinions and needs of students. We advocate for students by presenting their opinions to administrators and then work to develop solutions to solve these concerns.  Secondly, our committee acts as a resource to both students and administrators in helping to unify goals and agendas to the greater benefit of the university.

In order to most directly fulfill these goals, we host the new Cuisine Team meetings along with Aramark bi-monthly in various dining halls.  These meetings give both the students and Loyola Dining administrators the chance to converse about the ups and downs of the dining on campus.  During these meetings, students are invited to voice their concerns, put forth their ideas, or simply learn more about dining matters on campus. In the area of residence life, we meet with residence life director and are working to grow our relationship with the Residence Hall Association (RHA) to work cooperatively on residence life issues.


SGLC Safety and Wellness Committee is your official student body representatives to Loyola Campus Safety and the University Wellness Center.

We devote our time to the students' behalf concerning student health and safety. The SGLC Safety and Wellness Committee works frequently with the Director of Campus Safety, Dean of Students, Judicial Affairs, and the Director of the Wellness Center to bring any needed change to Loyola. This committee has members that sit on the Wellness Center Quality Control Board, CCRT University Sexual Prevention Board, Undergraduate Safety Net Coalition Alcohol Policy Board, and the Campus Safety Advisory Board.
