Because student housing at Loyola is unlike any other school, close to 80 percent of all Loyola students stay on campus all four years. The dorms are very nice, and all students, freshmen included, have the opportunity to live in apartment-style housing. After freshman year, all housing is apartment-style. Sophomore year's housing is not as good, as the rooms in Newman Towers that house four people are generally very small. The rooms that house six people are large, however, and both four- and six-person rooms in Campion Tower are a decent size.
Most students opt to live on campus their sophomore year regardless of the size of their room because junior and senior housing apartments are extremely large. Senior year, many students also have the opportunity to live in townhouses on the outskirts of campus as well, which is a happy medium between being on campus and being more independent as a senior.
