Parking & Transportation

On-campus, university designated parking is not available at the Water Tower Campus. However, the university does offer validated parking at several lots in the area. A list of these and instructions on how to validate parking can be found on the university’s Campus Transportation Water Tower Campus webpage. You may also pay to park on Pearson St., though spots are usually quite limited.

As far as public transportation, the Water Tower Campus is located one block from the CTA Chicago Red Line Stop and numerous CTA bus stops. If you have enrolled as a full-time student you will be eligible for our U-Pass Program, which provides unlimited riding on CTA buses and trains during the spring and fall semesters. CTA U-Passes are normally distributed during the first week of classes. More information about this program can be found on the CTA U-Pass webpage.

The Intercampus Shuttle Service runs a continuous loop between the Lake Shore Campus (located in Rogers Park) and the Water Tower Campus (located downtown) and is available to all Loyola students with a valid student ID. Schedules and general information regarding the operation of this shuttle can be found on the university’s Campus Transportation Intercampus Shuttle webpage.
