5. Housing & Meal Plan – Coming soon

We’re so excited for you to live on campus! Loras’ residence halls provide a great environment to meet many people who are different from yourself. It is where lifelong friendships are made.

The housing application opens in late December or early January. Look for an email with a housing application and unique housing login instructions. Housing assignments will be sent out by June 30. Watch your emails for more information.

6. Send Final Transcript

Once your graduation has been officially notated, please have your high school send your final transcript to admission@kanstyle.net.

Your Loras email is our primary means of communicating and contacting you over the summer. After you are assigned an official Loras email account—during your orientation session—please make sure you check it weekly over the summer and daily once you are on campus.
