Loyola's 60-acre Theodore G. Munz S.J. Campus, located at 1901 Johns Drive, is the site for athletic fields and a prairie, river and wetlands preserve area. It is located 3.4 miles from our Wilmette campus and is reachable by car in just ten minutes.
Student athletes use our Munz campus for practice and competition in soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, baseball, softball, and cross country.
Loyola's Science Department has overseen the development of the natural area surrounding the athletic fields. This area includes two wetlands in the northeast portion of the property, a prairie that skirts the perimeter of the athletic fields, and a section of the Chicago River that runs along the eastern border of the proper.
Loyola's Science Department has overseen the restoration of the wetlands and Chicago River along the eastern edge of the Munz Campus. The primary environmental benefit of this project is improved water quality in the North Branch of the Chicago River.
