4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It makes getting to class and work easier instead of going through the hassle of coming from off-campus and dealing with traffic.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is just okay. The buildings are old and there are a lot of maintenance problems. The only good part is that the housing is very close to classes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Biever Hall is pretty terrifying to live in. Buddig Hall is a step up, with more room and not having the whole hall share a bathroom. Carrollton Hall is really great from what I hear around campus, and Cabra Hall is apparently the best you can find!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but I lived in a dorm during orientation and the housing itself is not the best. However the campus life itself is great. It is a nice, fun atmosphere that promotes diversity and positivity.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus housing is simply at par. Nothing is horrible but nothing is excellent.

Living on campus is one of the best experiences anyone could have at Loyola University New Orleans. Three of the four residence halls—Biever, Buddig, and Carrollton—are on the main campus behind the Danna Center and near the RexPlex and Mercy Hall. The farthest building from these halls is the Communications and Music Complex, but it's still only a few minutes away. On the Broadway campus, just down the street about two blocks form the main campus, is Cabra Hall. While Cabra is very convenient for classes on the Broadway campus, students need to plan ahead to be on time to classes on the main campus. There is a free shuttle between the campuses to help students get to where they need to be.

Every residence hall is cleaned before students come for classes, during Christmas break, and immediately after students leave for the summer. In Biever Hall, the communal bathrooms are cleaned every weekday. In the other halls, because they are not communal, the students are responsible for cleaning them. All students are responsible for cleaning their rooms and keeping them maintained. If there is ever something wrong, for example a broken chair or a leaking air conditioner, all a student has to do is tell either their RA or area director (AD) to have the issue taken care of as soon as possible.
