The College is located in a comfortable suburban setting just 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis and the city's impressive array of cultural and recreational opportunities. Students enjoy both the vitality of the city of St. Louis and the safety of a suburb that is rated as one of the "Best 100 Places to Live." The College's 35-acre campus includes men's and women's residence halls and campus apartments, as well as educational and recreational facilities.
Offices, classrooms (several equipped with "smart" technology), gymnasium and fitness center, coffee house and cafeteria, chapel area, baseball field, and tennis courts are among the campus’s most attractive features. Students also have access to hiking trails on a nature preserve and a soccer field on property adjacent to the SLCC campus. "The Hundred," a Student Learning Center located in the Keystone Building, is available to all students for placement testing, academic counseling, and peer tutoring.
The McCaslin Library furnishes a wide range of resources and services to support students’ study, faculty research, and area ministries. In January 1997, the library moved into new facilities in Presidents Hall, providing room for physical growth as well as permitting expansion of electronic technologies. A well-lit, relaxing atmosphere enhances student study at tables or individual carrels, and a lounge area accommodates more informal reading. A well-equipped computer media laboratory gives students access to software used to complete coursework and also permits faculty to access materials for instructional purposes.
The library itself contains approximately 41,000 volumes and subscribes to 150 periodicals. Its special collections include a sizable number of nineteenth century religious works as well as the James E. Redden Collection of anthropology and linguistic materials. Additionally, the library houses approximately 16,000 microforms, 3,000 audiotapes, 400 videotapes, and other print and non-print educational resources. Audiovisual equipment is made available for in-house use of these materials or loaned to students involved in ministry.
McCaslin library provides wireless access to many online research sources. SLCC provides access to the EBSCOhost Online periodical database, which features electronic access to standard encyclopedias, an atlas, Bible study software, in addition to many full-text periodicals. The College also subscribes to the ATLA (American Theological Library Association) Religion Database, providing students with a wide range of search capabilities in breaking news, business, health, military, and religious information. Because the College is a member of the St. Louis Regional Library Network, SLCC students also have easy access to the resources of most libraries, both public and academic, throughout the metropolitan area
The campus of St. Louis Christian College is located in Florissant, Missouri, one mile west of the intersection of WestFlorissant Ave. and Interstate-270, and one–half mile east of the intersection of Washington/Elizabeth and Interstate-270.
Residence hall living is considered an integral part of the educational experience. Not only does it develop lasting friendships, it contributes to academic achievement, interpersonal development, and a better understanding of yourself.
Traditional freshmen (those coming to the College straight from high school) enrolled for nine or more hours or completing a degree program are expected to live in College housing, unless living with their parents or a close relative.
Room assignments are made for the year; however, if changes are necessary, arrangements may be made with the Residence Director. The College reserves the right to move students for appropriate reasons.
Private rooms are available upon a limited basis and upon request. There is an extra charge per semester for a private room.
