Campus Buildings:

The Garrett-Evangelical campus is comprised of five buildings toward the north and west side of Northwestern University's Evanston campus. In addition, the seminary owns three nearby apartment complexes.

  • Main, its Gothic tower visible from much of NU's campus, houses much of the administration, most of the classrooms (all outfitted for computer-assisted learning), many faculty offices, the United Library, and the Chapel of the Unnamed Faithful.
  • Shaffer is connected to the north end of the Main building and houses most of the faculty offices as well as the IT department.
  • Loder Hall, east and slightly south of the main building, contains the cafeteria (Food for Thought), guest rooms, dorm rooms, some administrative offices, student lounges and kitchen, lockers for commuting students and is LEED certified.
  • Pfeiffer is located directly to the east of Main and includes offices for faculty, development, and many of the Seminary's Centers.
  • Stead Hall, which is connected to the south side of the Main building, houses the Stead Center for Ethics and Values, the Lucy Rider Meyer Conference Room, and offices for the library.
