Get Ready

All first-year students live on campus and have the unique opportunity of living in a community that is specifically designed to facilitate their transition to the university. Every residential floor is mentored by a Resident Assistant, an upperclass student trained to create an environment of personal and academic support through individual relationships as well as educational and social programming. Each resident hall also houses Resident Chaplains, professional staff and clergy available to students for emotional, social, and spiritual support.

Once you've been admitted to Loyola and made your deposit, it's time to prepare for your first semester. Here's how to get started.
