Inside Loyola Portal

Inside Loyola Overview

The Inside Loyola portal was updated on June 7 and includes enhancements such as a simpler, more modern looking website, with content targeted to your role within the university. In addition, the new search functionality provides results from both Loyola.edu and Knowledge Base articles.

The Inside Loyola portal is your primary landing page to access applications, tools and information generally requiring a Loyola login. Please continue to use Loyola.edu as your source for public-facing content.

The new portal was designed based on feedback from the Loyola community, including 650 survey responses, live requirements gathering and focus group sessions, representing students, faculty, staff and administrators.

Features

  • Streamlined page - The page is simpler, more modern looking and groups content within three categories:
    • “Teaching, Learning, Working”
    • “Around Campus”
    • “Resources for Employees” including student employees

Each category includes links applicable to all students, faculty, staff and administrators. You will only see applications that you have access to.

  • Improved Search capability – You'll find results from both Loyola.edu and Knowledge Base articles.  Results will include files that you have access to via Microsoft Teams permissions.
  • Announcement bar – This banner will only appear if there is something important to announce, otherwise it will be hidden.
  • Report an Incident – This new page combines the reporting mechanisms (information and links) for community incident reporting.

  • Employee Self-Service – This direct link replaces WebAdvisor and provides employees with resources such as tax and banking information, earning statements, leave, forms, and benefits.

    • Signing out of Inside Loyola and other Loyola web services is extremely critical, especially if you were to access them from public computers or from devices shared with other people. Failure to fully sign out before exiting the browser on shared devices may allow other people using the device after you to access your personal information and Loyola sensitive data.
