Loras’ residence halls provide an environment of opportunities where students value active learning, reflective thinking, ethical decision making and can be responsible contributors to our community. It’s a place where you meet many people, different from yourself. It is where lifelong friendships are made. Typically, first year students reside in Traditional Residence Halls. Students can live in Alternative Housing when the required number of credits have been earned.
Housing assignments will be sent out by June 30th, so please watch your emails for more information!
Wondering what you should bring to make your room feel more like home? Please see our Suggested Packing List which includes refrigerator and microwave requirements!
An AC (Area Coordinator) manages the hall with the help of the student staff. The AC is responsible for advising, counseling, handling conduct issues and providing an environment that will help residents grow academically and personally. An RA (Resident Advisor) is a student staff member. There is usually one RA per floor, and they are responsible for developing community. They assist the AC with programming encourage involvement, deal with conduct issues, assist with community standards and are a great resource for students.
