This page will be updated in the event of a weather closing. In addition, the message on the CTS main line number (773) 896-2400 will be changed by 6:45 am on the day in question.

In addition to the CTS weather hotline, school closing information is available at the following locations:

If you are a student living outside of the Chicago metro area and cannot get to CTS due to weather conditions in your area on a day that CTS remains open, please notify your professor.

Emergency Text Alert System

At Chicago Theological Seminary, your safety is one of our top priorities. With this in mind, CTS has opted to use a text alert emergency system to notify students of campus closings and other emergencies. Students have the option to opt in for this service. I highly recommend this service to receive alerts quickly.  If you do not opt in, you will receive emergency notifications via your CTS email. 

Click HERE and fill out the sign up form to opt in to receiving text alerts.  Your phone number will be added to the text alert system and will be kept private.
