Culture

In Residence Life at Loyola University Chicago, our work is grounded in the Jesuit values of cura personalis (care for the whole person) and magis (excellence).  We do quality work, have fun, and are highly collaborative both within the department and campus community.  Our students are focused on learning how to succeed academically and become agents of change in society.  If you work at Loyola, you will have the chance to make a difference and develop your skills at a high level while living in the amazing city of Chicago.  Come join us!

Mission

In partnership with our residents, the Department of Residence Life enhances the Loyola Experience by providing safe and supportive living communities where students can engage with others, explore their personal identity, and develop a deeper understanding of their impact on the world.

Vision

By providing excellent customer service and fostering diverse and inclusive communities in well-maintained buildings, Residence Life will be the preferred housing choice for Loyola students. Through our innovative practices, living on campus will become an integral part of the educational experience and help prepare students to create meaningful change in the world. 

Curriculum

The Residential Curriculum at Loyola University Chicago puts learning at the forefront of the residential experience. We are currently in our third year of implementation. By living in the residence halls, students will have the opportunity to learn important skills and knowledge that enhance their experience at Loyola, such as: 

‚Äč

  • Doing laundry

  • Maintaining commitment to diversity and social justice

  • Using public transportation

  • Defining healthy relationships and consent

  • Developing study skills

  • Identifying emotional wellness support strategies

  • Designing personal and professional goals

  • Identifying personal values and Jesuit values

 

Resident Assistants (RAs) will also build community on their floors through social programs and by getting to know their residents individually.  At least once per semester, RAs are expected to have an intentional one-on-one conversation with each of their residents, called Residential Connections.
