Why We Like This Place

5 reasons to say “I do” at Loyola University Chicago:

  • A variety of venues across two campuses showcase different settings, including a lakeside mansion and gardens, a glass atrium with wraparound terrace, and reception rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking city or lake views.
  • Outdoor wedding receptions offer sparkling views of Lake Michigan—a stunning backdrop that will wow your guests and guarantee beautiful photos.
  • An experienced event staff will work with you to coordinate all the logistics, details and customizations to ensure your wedding is a success.
  • A 20% venue discount is available during off-season months (November 1st–March 31st).
  • Delicious gourmet cuisine is provided by Loyola’s exclusive caterer, and you can enhance your menu with a Carving, Pasta, Asian Stir Fry or Dessert Station. Why not add a brunch package, too, and give your guests a satisfying send-off!
