Prospective HS Students

Make an educated decision

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.

Whether it’s nursing patients or advocating for social rights, my time at Loyola taught me to pursue my passions.
