Saint Augustine College, located in the city of Chicago, was the first bilingual of institution of higher learning to be established in the state of Illinois. The school, founded by the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, began serving the community in the fall of 1980, and has since expanded into a four-campus educational system. Today, about 1,400 bilingual scholars pursue student living at Saint Augustine College, many of them electing to live in off campus housing near the school’s Main, West, South or Southeast campus.
At the core of student living at Saint Augustine College sits the school’s research-based belief that a large number of Hispanic adults in the Chicago area were capable of completing a range of four-year degree programs, but needed language assistance to compete at such a high level of education. Saint Augustine offers 14 bilingual degree programs, including a Bachelors degree in Social Work. Other options for those with student housing include Associates of Arts degrees, Associates of Applied Sciences degrees, and career certificates in disciplines as far-reaching as Business Administration, Early Childhood Education, Respiratory Therapy, Culinary Arts and Liberal Arts.
Off campus housing at Satin Augustine College’s Main Campus is scattered around Argyle and Lawrence stops on the L.
