Students | Residential Life

How can I contact Residential Life?

Residential Life is available for phone and/or video appointments to assist students. Email reslife@loyno.edu or call 504.865.2445 if you have any questions about your housing plan for Fall 2020. After the start of the semester, in-person appointments will be available upon request on a limited basis.

Will housing rates be discounted because students are going home after Thanksgiving?

No. Housing contracts are annual. While you will be in the residence halls for a shorter amount of time in the fall semester, the residence halls will be available to you earlier in the spring for our January term.

How will you keep residence halls safe for the Fall 2020 semester?

Loyola, like many other universities, has made the decision to reduce the density in our residence halls to minimize risk of infection spread. We will also implement enhanced cleaning protocols in common spaces and restrooms. Review our Student Affairs guide for more details about our return to campus in the fall. 

When will I be notified of my housing assignment?

We are planning to send out housing assignment notifications by July 15.

If I am living on campus will I be able to travel during the school year?

All students living in on-campus or off-campus housing during the Fall 2020 semester will be expected to remain in the New Orleans area during the semester, refraining from unnecessary travel until we go home at Thanksgiving. If you must travel, please call Student Health Services at 504.865.3326 and inform them of your travel plans; you may be asked to self isolate for 14 days upon your return. 

Can I come back to campus?

If you vacated campus for the Spring 2020 semester and need to retrieve belongings, contact Residential Life at 504.865.2445 to coordinate a pick up date. Otherwise, residence halls are closed to visitors for the summer as we prepare for the fall.
