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 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.
