Alumni library card benefits

Those who hold a valid alumni library card and a government-issued photo ID are able to use University Library facilities, borrow books and be granted access to certain databases while on campus -- remote access to databases is not available to alumni. Access and borrowing privileges for the Law Library (located on the 3rd floor of the Corboy Law Center) are different from the rest of the University system. For more specific information about alumni library privileges, please call (773) 508-2631 or visit the University Libraries website.

Computer access

Alumni may obtain a one-day Guest Network Account from the Information Commons, located next to Cudahy Library on the Lakeshore campus, or Lewis Library at the Water Tower Campus. The Guest Network Account provides limited access to the Loyola network for 24 hours. The University is not able to provide access to Loyola's wireless network to guests at this time.

Where to inquire about a guest network account

  • Lake Shore Campus: 2nd floor Services Desk of the Information Commons
  • Water Tower Campus: 6th floor Services Desk of Lewis Library in the Corboy Law Center
    • The Law Library, located on the 3rd floor of the Corboy Law Center, has computer terminals set aside for alumni. Please ask a librarian for assistance.

Who qualifies

Alumni library cards and the privileges associated with them are granted to alumni who are graduates of the University or alumni of the John Felice Rome Center Rome Center. Loyola University Chicago recognizes its graduates and former students as its alumni. A graduate is defined as a person who has received a degree from Loyola University Chicago or any of its related institutions; a former student is defined as a person who was enrolled at Loyola for at least one semester. Not all former students have records maintained in the alumni database, and some alumni benefits and communications only apply to graduates who are alumni.
