Loyola University Chicago

Welcome Week

Thursday, August 29

U-Pass Pickup

10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. l Centennial Forum, Centennial Forum Lobby

The U-Pass is an all-inclusive transit card that allows full-time students to ride the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) buses and trains for an unlimited amount of time throughout the academic year. Using CTA is a great way to navigate Chicago, as well as a great way to get to and from the Lakeshore and Water Tower Campuses.  First year students can pick up their U-Passes during the first weekend before classes start as well as the first week of classes. For more information, please visit www.luc.edu/upass.
