What do you want to see?
We encourage you to visit both campuses, especially if your areas of interest include programs located downtown: the Schools of Education, Social Work, Business, and Communication, as well as the Computer Science department. Ideally, we'd recommend one of the following itineraries:
- Lake Shore Campus visit from 10 a.m.–noon, followed by a Water Tower Campus tour from 2:15–3 p.m.
- Water Tower Campus tour noon–12:45 p.m., followed by Lake Shore Campus visit from 2–4 p.m.
During the fall and spring semesters when classes are in session, we have Loyola shuttle passes available in the Undergraduate Admission Office for our visiting students and families. If you are visiting during the summer or on a day when the shuttle is not running, we are happy to provide directions for driving or public transportation between the two campuses.
Loyola strives for its campus to be accessible to all individuals. If you need disability-related accommodations, please contact us at visitloyola@LUC.edu.
Lake Shore Campus
The admission presentation is a great introduction to Loyola and all we have to offer. Presentations are offered twice a day, Monday through Saturday. The 45-minute presentation is followed by a student-led tour of the Lake Shore Campus.
With a current Loyola student as your guide, explore our Rogers Park campus, including the academic facilities, Damen Student Center, Klarchek Information Commons, a freshman residence hall, and much more.
While you cannot sign up for a stand-alone tour of the Lake Shore Campus, you will be able to request a tour when you register for any of our other visit events.
Individual Admission Counselor Appointments
(Recommended for any admitted student visiting campus during the week)
This is your chance to sit down with an admission professional to talk about life at Loyola, your goals, and all the questions you have. You can also go over all the information from the general presentation but with a focus on your own interests. Appointments are offered Monday through Friday at the Lake Shore Campus Undergraduate Admission Office.
Register for an individual appointment or you can add an individual appointment as a part of your special visit request.
At certain times of the year, we have limited capacity for individual appointments, so priority is given to admitted students. If space is not available, you are welcome to come talk to an admission counselor before or after your admission presentation and tour.
Step into an introductory level class on either the Lake Shore or Water Tower Campus, and experience Loyola’s school environment firsthand. Sign up for a classroom visit through the Special Visit Request Form, and please include any preferences for a particular academic area.
Shadow a Student
Find out what it means to be a Rambler. Follow a current student for a half day to experience what their life is typically like. You will have the opportunity to attend classes and eat a meal with this student as well as schedule a meeting with an admission counselor or attend a tour.
Shadow visits will take place Monday through Friday during the morning. Please submit a Shadow Student Request Form at least two weeks in advance. If you have any questions about the program, you can contact us at YOU@LUC.edu or 773.508.3022.
Special Visit Request
We recognize that often during a campus visit, you may want to do multiple things or see something specific. So just ask us! The special request form will allow you to add any of the other visit features mentioned above (except the Student Shadow Program), so you don’t need to schedule them separately.
In order to accommodate your request, please submit the Special Visit Request Form at least two weeks in advance.
Water Tower Campus
With a current Loyola student as your guide, visit the academic facilities, Terry Student Center, and more at the Water Tower Campus. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a view of a residence hall room on this tour. Tours depart from the Undergraduate Admission Office in the Schreiber Center, Room 221.
What other campus has an adorable 98-year-old Sister Jean walking around? She's basically the "cool grandma" for students.
