The exterior of Simpson Hall
Simpson Living-Learning Center, a residence hall on Loyola's Lake Shore Campus.

At the Summer Institute, students live in a Loyola Residence Hall for the week - it's an excellent sample of a big part of college life! Each student is paired with a roommate. Sheets, towels, and a pillow are provided in the residence halls. Find out more information about Loyola's residence halls from the Department of Residence Life. In the past, our Summer Institute students have stayed in Mertz Hall, de Nobili Hall, and Simpson Living Learning Center. The exact residence hall varies year-to-year based on availability. 

We’ll share our meals together in one of Loyola's on-campus dining halls. Dining Services works hard to accommodate food allergies and diets. Learn more about Dining Services on their website. All meals are included in the Program Fee.
