High School Senior

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. 

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

Admission Presentation

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.

Campus Tours

With a current Loyola student as your guide, explore our Rogers Park campus, including the academic facilities, Damen Student Center, 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 or families that have previously visited campus)
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.


Classroom Visit

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. 

Shadow visits will take place Monday through Friday during the morning. Please try to schedule a shadow visit 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

Campus Tours

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.

The opportunities the Honors Program has given me to progress and succeed in my undergraduate career are unmeasurable.
