Housing and Transportation

Guest housing is available for all prospective student events and visits. Travel stipends are also usually available. LSTC will coordinate transportation to/from all major airports, bus stations, train stations, and public transportation hubs. If flying, we recommend you use Midway Airport as it is close to LSTC, but we also coordinate transportation to/from O’Hare.

Check out our Maps and Directions page.

Individual Visit

A personalized, individual visit can be scheduled anytime. For a full LSTC experience we recommend visiting during the academic year when classes are in session (Monday-Thursday), but we will still arrange a meaningful visit for you at other times during the year.

During your visit you can sit in on classes, meet with faculty and current students, attend chapel, tour the LSTC campus and our vintage brownstone housing, and explore the Hyde Park neighborhood and downtown Chicago. You will also have the opportunity to meet with Admissions staff and discuss degree programs and financial aid.

Seminary Sampler

Seminary Sampler is a three-day event designed for those who really want to immerse themselves in what it means to be a seminarian in Hyde Park. In addition to experiencing all the activities of an individual visit, Seminary Sampler participants will meet other individuals discerning a call to ministry, enjoy a meal in Chicago’s vibrant Greektown neighborhood, engage in conversation with LSTC’s President, meet the faculty of LSTC, and spend time with current students.

Seminary Sampler begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday afternoon and ends at 1:30 pm on Tuesday afternoon. Housing and meals during the event are provided, travel stipends are available. Spouses, partners, and parents are invited to attend.
