After half a century as part of the University of Chicago community, the Seminary Co-op Bookstore will move on November 21, 2012, to a new location at UChicago's McGiffert House, 5751 South Woodlawn Avenue—just one block from its original home at the Chicago Theological Seminary. Designed by the renowned architects at Tigerman McCurry, this elegant space will maintain that character of the Co-op and allow it to host readings and author events while continuing the focus on an outstanding collection of texts.

While the bookstore is closed for moving from November 12–20, customers can still place phone and online orders. Several events will celebrate the new space in weeks to come. Visit to learn more.
