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 that doesn’t mean you have 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

 As we get closer to move-in day, be sure to check out our resources for Arriving on Campus with more details to make your first day a success. 


Planning to Live at Home?

Loyola requires every student to live on campus for the first year. To apply for an exemption, you must submit the 2020-2021 Housing Exemption application in your Residence account. With your application, you must also upload additional documentation verifying your exemption eligibility.
