A Jesuit Liberal Arts Education. Time-Tested. Proven. In Demand Now More Than Ever.

Loyola University Maryland time-tested, distinctly taught Jesuit approach to education allows students to master the tools and develop the traits needed to learn, lead, and serve in our diverse and ever-changing world. Loyola is everything Jesuit education should be: rigorous, values oriented, communal, and spiritually uplifting. Your experiences here will be some of the most transformative of your life—and some of the most rewarding. They will help you become even more than you knew you could be: more knowledgeable, capable, confident, and committed to changing lives—others’ and your own. You’ll be prepared and eager to face whatever the future holds in your life and career that follow. 

With just under 4,000 undergraduates from 40 states, 40+ countries, and six continents, Loyola is big enough to inspire and challenge you, yet small enough to be welcoming, personal, and accessible. Surrounded by people from different backgrounds and with diverse interests, you will be immersed in an experience that is sure to be rich and guaranteed to surprise you. You will feel comfortable taking risks, asking bold questions, and trying new things. And you will forge deep, meaningful relationships with your peers, professors, coaches, classmates, and neighbors. 

As a Loyola student, you will embrace new perspectives and expand your possibilities, shatter your preconceptions, find your joy, and divine your truths. So that when you graduate, you'll be ready: Ready to meet the complex demands of today—and to anticipate and adapt to the needs of tomorrow. Ready to forge a career that’s true to who you are. Ready to build a life you love and create the world you imagine. More than ready. Loyola ready.

Classic. Lush. Modern. Timeless. Evergreen. Loyola's Evergreen Campus is an Accredited Arboretum Sprawling 81 Wooded Acres in The Heart of a Residential Neighborhood of Baltimore City.

Located on 81 acres of wooded Maryland landscape just five miles north of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Loyola offers the best of two worlds. Our campus is distinct from the surrounding city, yet intimately connected to the diverse and quirky metropolis we call home. Loyola’s campus is, quite simply, what you picture when you think of college... Lush, green trees and grassy quadrangles where students toss Frisbees, enjoy lunch on a blanket with friends, or sip iced coffee in the sunshine between classes. Beautiful stone buildings that inspire you to crack the books. Nationally ranked residence halls (top 10 in the country!) that become your home away from home. State-of-the-art classrooms and labs, studios, and athletic facilities that inspire you to delve deeper, to create, to perform, to compete. Nooks and crannies for studying for your afternoon exam or listening to music. Spaces to spread out, hold a meeting with a student club, or stretch your legs while you brush up on Shakespeare. 

It’s no wonder that 81% of undergraduates choose to live on campus throughout their four years at Loyola. Learn more at

A Major Metropolis with a Small-Town Vibe, Baltimore Is Walkable, Bike-able, Accessible, and Affordable. It's a Place Where You Can Be Yourself Or Reinvent Yourself Completely.

Anticipation. That’s the pulse beating through the heart of Baltimore. Loyola residents and eager newcomers alike are looking toward the future with optimism, excitement, curiosity, and determination. With 160,000 students at 14 universities, Baltimore is very much a college town.  Mix in the region’s excellent job prospects, and it’s easy to see why college-educated millennials have been streaming into the city at record pace for the past two decades. Loyola attracts the types of students who are also attracted to Baltimore, people eager to shape their lives—and their city—according to their ideals. Whether you dream of forming your own tech startup, opening a craft brewery, or becoming a social activist in a region that’s ripe for change, Baltimore is the ideal place to begin. Learn More at

It’s a great place to launch your career—and your life. A burgeoning technology sector. Second-to-none in biotech and biohealth. One of the fastest-growing hubs for pharmaceuticals and forensics in the country. Growing, affordable neighborhoods ideal for young professionals. Fertile ground to start a business, and at a low relative cost. The rich soil of Baltimore has been tilled—and it’s ready for the innovative ideas and passionate action of Loyola students and graduates. 

It’s FUN. Where else can you crack crabs on a waterfront deck listening to live music? Ride a bike as part of an organized monthly parade featuring thousands of other people wearing themed costumes? Play beach volleyball a stone’s throw from the downtown business district? Picnic and play Wiffle ball in the same site that inspired our country's national anthem?

It’s affordable. Baltimore offers world-class theater and performing arts, concerts, incredible food, festivals, and cultural events—with none of the pretension or the price tag of other cities. 

It’s accessible. Baltimore is walkable, drivable, bike-able, and easy to navigate. A ticket for the Baltimore Water Taxi, which stops at multiple points within and around the harbor, is good for an entire day. Take advantage of Baltimore's public transportation with a day pass for the metro subway, hop on a local bus, or explore the city for free via the Charm City Circulator.

It’s manageable. Referred to as “Smalltimore” by the locals, Baltimore is made up of many distinct neighborhoods, each with its own personality. It's big enough that you'll never run out of things to do, see, and eat, yet small enough to be familiar and not overwhelming.

Academics. Focused, Effective Career Preparation and the Profound Benefits of a Liberal Arts Education.

At Loyola, you won’t have to choose between focused, effective career preparation and the profound, life-long benefits of a liberal arts education. In fact, it’s a false choice. Because the skills that will give you the security in the new world of work are the very capabilities that define us as human beings. There’s a simple reason a comprehensive liberal arts experience has been the Jesuit education standard for hundreds of years: It works. No other academic foundation better prepares you to meet the various and complex challenges you will face in your life—today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now. 

The curriculum at Loyola is divided into three parts: the core, the major, and electives. The core contains courses essential to the liberal arts foundation of a Jesuit education: a classical or foreign language, literature, writing, natural and applied science, social science, fine arts, history, philosophy, ethics, diversity, and theology, and these courses are completed by all students throughout their years. Majors enable students to pursue their specialized area of study in depth. Electives give students the opportunity to broaden their intellectual and cultural background in areas of special interest. Through service-learning, research, practicums, field experience, internships, and independent study, students extend classroom learning throughout their coursework and obtain valuable skills and experience. 

Messina, Loyola’s first-year experience, is designed to help students adjust quickly to college-level work and forge a clear path to success at Loyola and in the life and career that will follow. Messina offers a similarly distinctive and powerful beginning, an opportunity to explore a wide range of academic disciplines, appreciate their interconnectedness, and take to heart the importance of learning in a student’s personal and intellectual growth.

The Greyhound Nation is a Talented, Driven, Intellectually Curious Community Where You'll Feel Inspired, Encouraged, and Empowered to Put Your All Into Everything You Do.

Happy. That may not be the first word that comes to mind when you think about college life and all of its demands. But come to Loyola’s campus and you’ll feel it: the joyfulness and contagious energy of students who are thriving, learning, growing, and doing what they love. 

Loyola students work hard—and they play hard. They live life with spirit, with thought, with passion, and with action. With more than 200+ student-led clubs and organizations, 18 NCAA Division I Teams, 35+ club and intramural teams, and countless service opportunities, traditions, lectures, concerts, and on-campus events, Greyhounds have a world of opportunity to get involved, pursue a passion—and even discover a new one. Loyola's offices of student engagement, student activities, and student life offer further opportunities throughout the year for students to get off campus and explore and experience Baltimore and beyond.

The Greyhound Nation is composed of 4,000 vibrant, dynamic students—all with their own talents, points of view, beliefs, heritages, and ideas. These are people who will debate the universe’s big questions, share breakfast, watch Netflix, and exchange everything from music to clothes with you—maybe all in the same day. The people who make class more interesting and campus more fun. The people who inspire you, who will push you to define your path—and yourself. You can’t underestimate the value of being surrounded by highly intelligent, curious, driven, opinionated, down-to-earth friends. The people you surround yourself with, learn from, serve, grow, and network with will all play a role in your future path, both in your life and your career. So, if you’re looking for excellence, look no further. Learn more at and the admissions process at
