*Price listed is the price for the full academic course load, which is 20 hours per week. Prices to per course are $282 for 4 weeks, $563 for 8 weeks, and $1125 for 15 weeks. The option to attend LIEP part-time is not available to students on an F-1 visa.
On-campus housing may not be available for students who attend the 7-8 week session during the Fall and Spring. If you wish to stay on campus during a 7-8 week session during the Fall or Spring, please contact us and we will check availability for you.
Housing for men and women is available on campus in Loyola’s modern, air-conditioned residence halls. They provide a safe and secure living environment and give you the opportunity to make friends with U.S. students. All rooms are double rooms, and LIEP students are almost always placed with English-speaking roommates. You should apply early since space in the residence halls is extremely limited.
Many apartments are available near campus if you plan to stay in New Orleans for a longer period of time. For more information about living off-campus, visit http://loyno.universityrentallisting.com. We recommend, however, that you initially live on campus. There are several cafeterias on campus which serve three meals daily at moderate prices. There is also a wide variety of inexpensive restaurants in the university area.
If you decide to live on-campus, you will need to fill out out a housing application and contract. This is available as part of your application to LIEP.
