Students can grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the stunning views by the sixth largest freshwater lake in the world. Business and Communication students may take classes in the bustling downtown Water Tower Campus. With a free Loyola shuttle running between campuses, the 20-minute commute is a breeze.

Fondly referred to as ‘The Ramblers’ this University hosts 11 Division 1 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) teams, 5 libraries for students to utilise and over 200 registered student organisations to get involved in. There is always something to do, and some place to go at Loyola!

With over 80 different majors and hundreds of courses to choose from each semester, various integrated learning facilities and lots of Loyola pride, students can get ahead in their studies while living in a fast-paced and thriving city.

Chicago is home to over 200 theatres and art galleries, over 5,000 restaurants, 19 miles of lakefront bike paths and 552 parks! Some of the most prolific activists, artists, politicians, philanthropists, sports players and writers have called Chicago their own.
