Return to Campus

Return to Campus

Loyola University Chicago’s guidelines for returning to campus are focused on the health, safety, and well-being of our community as our top priority. As we prepare for the upcoming semesters, we are happy to announce our intention to return fully to our Chicagoland campuses with in-person classes and residence hall occupancy. Everyone in our community will need to stay vigilant and comply with health and safety guidelines, and we will continue to seek guidance from public health experts—both inside and outside of Loyola—on what is legally allowed and medically advisable. This website will be updated as necessary. Now more than ever, we are called together to care for ourselves, each other, and the broader community.

Through May 22
