Loyola celebrates diversity everywhere, and our campuses are no exception. From urban energy to lakefront settings to historic cities, we're at home around Chicago and around the globe.
Lake Shore Campus
Loyola's main residential campus is set along the shore of Lake Michigan on Chicago's North Side, 20 minutes from downtown Chicago and the Water Tower Campus. If you’re visiting Loyola for the first time, we recommend you start here. Learn more about our Lake Shore Campus.

Located in the western suburbs near Chicago, the campus is home to the Stritch School of Medicine and the graduate programs at the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing. It also serves as the headquarters for the Loyola University Health System. Learn more about the Health Sciences Campus.
