Pack Like a Pro 

Moving out on your own is a huge milestone, and we want you to feel at home in your new space. But you don’t need to arrive with every single item ready for your room. Use our packing list to prioritize the most important things to bring.  

A few essentials: 

  • XL twin bed linens 
  • Mattress pad or cover (required)
  • Towels and toiletries
  • Wastebasket
  • Cleaning and sanitizing supplies 
  • Laundry basket and detergent pods
  • Personal medications
  • Extra drinking water and snacks 

Housing Accommodations 

Loyola honors the dignity of each student by offering appropriate accommodations for students with documented and approved disabilities. See Requests for Housing Accommodations to learn more.

Planning to Live at Home?

Loyola requires every student to live on campus for your first two academic years. To apply for an exemption, you must submit the 2022-2023 Housing Exemption application in The Housing Director. With your application, you must also upload additional documentation verifying your exemption eligibility.

Commuter students have many opportunities to get immersed in our campus experience too!
