The Estate

Last year, old Loyola, the building in front of the Estate, was demolished. Further improvements were made this summer and fall, including a new bluestone terrace in the area immediately in front of the historic building and stone entrance steps inspired by its original design. The enhancements also added contemplation walkways of bluestone and granite to the grounds.

The Commons

Over the summer, the University completed work on the Commons between the new Commons Flag Terrace and the University’s parking pavilion at the entrance of Weinberg Memorial Library. The project included a new walkway surface of bluestone and granite pavers, consistent with the design used throughout the campus. The University received funding support for the project from the Multimodal Transportation Fund of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The Kevin P. Quinn, S.J., Athletics Campus


The softball field at The Kevin P. Quinn, S.J., Athletics Campus was installed this fall, making it the first of the three fields at the new facility to have the turf completed. While the bleachers and surrounding work are finished at the softball field, preparation for the installation of the playing surface on the baseball and multi-purpose fields continues. Work on the playing surface foundation, bleachers, press boxes and surrounding structures continues on both fields.

The Kevin P. Quinn, S.J., Athletics Campus will feature NCAA-regulation baseball and softball fields as well as a multi-purpose field that meets NCAA regulations for men's and women's soccer, field hockey and men's and women's lacrosse.
