College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus and have no experience with housing

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My first time stepping on to a dorm was when i had to go to the Convocation ceremony and it wasn't bad but the beds were a little stiff and the bathrooms needed to be bigger and cleaned more often since there are four people sharing one bathroom. But the rooms looked well kept nothing fancy but passable.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Like most other universities, Loyola requires freshmen to live on campus. This may not sound like a blast, but sharing a communal bathroom and living under the tyrannical boot of an RA can be the perfect bonding experience for young men and women who have not lived away from home before. Most students agree: the people you live with freshman year will probably be some of your best friends four years later. Even if your roommate is a nightmarish slob or a stuck-up neat freak, odds are, you’ll be able to find dozens of people you can relate to within the walls of your residence hall. The time you spend packed into a dormitory with hundreds of other vibrantly individual people will be one you look back on and relish.

Although the standard cry of Mertz Hall residents is “Mertz ‘til it Hurts,” don’t let all those people who live in Simpson or Campion get you down. If you choose to live in Mertz Hall, you will have to deal with fire alarms in the middle of the night during finals, a laundry room with more broken machines than functional ones, and elevators that only work on the third Tuesday of every month, but you will also live in what is arguably the social center of campus along with about 500 other people. Simpson’s rooms are clean, but small. Each room holds two people and is arranged with two or three other rooms into a suite. Kept at such close quarters, students cannot help but get to know their suitemates quite intimately. Even Regis Hall, the holy grail of freshman residence halls, has its ups and downs, as students exchange a social housing experience for a private bathroom.

Did You Know?
  • All campus housing at Loyola is now smoke free.
  • Most of Loyola's residence halls are named after other Jesuit universities, with the exception of Mertz and Coffey Halls.
  • Loyola requires all students with less than 56 credit hours to live on-campus. That means most people will have to wait until after sophomore year to find their dream apartment off campus.
  • Loyola is currently in the process of renovating, demolishing, and building new dormitories, structuring the majority of its residence life on the south side of campus, while most other campus buildings are to the north.
