Loras College is a Catholic liberal arts college located in Dubuque, Iowa, a city of approximately 67,000 people. The campus is nestled high atop the majestic bluffs of the Mississippi River and overlooks the states of Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa. Loras is small enough to be personal, yet large enough to provide students a well-rounded academic and co-curricular experience.

Loras provides laptop computers, a wireless campus network and on-campus technical support. Faculty members use technology to enhance the classroom experience, making it more engaging and pertinent to the world in which we live.

At the heart of our academics is a commitment to hands-on learning. There are more than 40 majors, minors and pre-professional programs to choose from, and a dedicated Center for Experiential Learning, giving you access to a wide variety of opportunities to prepare you for life after Loras.  Our student to faculty ratio of 12:1 allows students to form working relationships with professors.   Study abroad and away, in-depth January Term courses and internships all provide creative ways of learning and experiences that will prepare you for future endeavors. 

As a Catholic college, your faith journey is just as important to us as your academic journey is. Regardless of your religion or beliefs, the Loras experience empowers students to explore, develop or strengthen your faith and spirituality. Service trips, prayer groups, Campus Ministry and other organizations provide support for students to explore their beliefs and interests. 

In 2014, Loras earned the first President's Award for Community Service-- Interfaith from the Corporation for National Service, Department of Education and the White House for our commitment to service and interfaith engagement.

Loras offers 23 varsity athletics – 12 for men and 11 for women. An NCAA Division III school, Loras participates in the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Loras student-athletes are widely successful: hundreds have been all-conference, all-American, conference and national champion athletes.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
