The Water Tower Campus (WTC) at North Michigan Avenue was established in 1946, and lies at the heart of downtown Chicago, just a short distance away from the city's "Magnificent Mile". The campus is home to seven schools and colleges, including the Quinlan School of Business and the School of Social Work. The WTC also encompasses the historic Lewis Towers and the Loyola University Museum of Art
