Living in Chicago

Urban learning

We value students studying and learning in an urban setting, with all its resources. Our location truly prepares you for leadership in the public church—to wherever God calls you.

‘Sweet home Chicago’

Chicago is filled with activity and opportunity: museums and music, restaurants and theater, sports and architecture. There is always something to do in Chicago—even if it’s just enjoying beautiful Lake Michigan or the stunning skyline. In our country’s third largest city, meaningful opportunities and human relationships are boundless. Local churches, large and small, reflect a varied history and a hopeful future. 

Hyde Park

Hyde Park is an ethnically and economically diverse neighborhood in Chicago’s South Side. It is home to the University of Chicago. Located seven miles south of downtown, Hyde Park’s lakefront parks, tree-lined streets, public transportation and variety of races and cultures make it one of Chicago’s most popular residential neighborhoods.

The University of Chicago

The University of Chicago, located just south of our campus, is a world center of research and learning in almost every field. LSTC students and faculty have full borrowing privileges at its library and participate in its social, cultural and athletic offerings.

Our campus

In our main building at 55th and University you’ll find classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, Augustana Chapel, the JKM Library and Refectory. A courtyard provides an open, green space at the center of campus. Student housing is just across the street. Within walking distance are shops, museums, restaurants, majestic Lake Michigan and public transportation.
