Concordia University Texas prepares students for the future through personalized education that incorporates challenging, hands-on instruction with Christian-based values. Located in Austin, Texas, our small, dynamic University allows learners to utilize all the resources the professors and campus have to offer while engaging with innumerable opportunities for experiential learning and personal growth. Approachable, collaborative, and supportive, we stress the values of meaningful work and lifelong learning. We are recognized for our integrity, academic excellence, and Lutheran ethos.
CTX and you
Regardless of who you are or where you’re from, Concordia has a place for you to learn and grow. During the academic semester, chapel service is available every morning at 10:00 for students who choose to attend. As you walk through campus, you’ll come across a relaxed atmosphere filled with friendly faces. Rather than getting lost in the shuffle, our students enjoy small class sizes and caring professors who offer a personal approach to academics. An average class size of 15 students ensures you’ll get individualized attention from each professor. They’ll know your interests, your career path, where you’re from, and more; you won’t be just a face in the crowd.
The CTX difference
We enroll, retain, and graduate students who are leaders in the classroom and in their communities. Students of diverse ages and cultures experience a quality, Christ-centered Lutheran education. With the purpose of cultivating goodness, beauty, and truth, we believe the adventure of faith, learning, and life-changing experiences leads to meaningful work.
Concordia’s beautiful campus in Northwest Austin is just minutes away from historical landmarks, live music venues, hiking and biking trails, one-of-a-kind restaurants, beautiful Lake Travis, and many other exciting things to do.

Austin is known as the “Live Music Capital of the World,” and you can find music of every variety here. Film enthusiasts and aspiring actors enjoy many theatrical performances and the budding film scene in Austin.
Strategically located in a city known for start-ups and tech companies, it’s no wonder Concordia launched an entrepreneurial hub called Incubator-CTX. This co-working platform connects community entrepreneurs with academic insights, student support, and mentors and serves as a space where entrepreneurs discover and execute business practices that positively impact communities.
Our campus boasts the Concordia Preserve, a protected environment of 250+ acres that is home to native plants and endangered animal species.
A liberal arts education
Our liberal arts education model promotes a broad foundation of knowledge and further develops intellectual engagement. Students learn not only what to study but how to learn, going beyond the boundaries of the classroom and engaging with visiting scholars and lecturers, service learning opportunities, study abroad programs, and a variety of creative pursuits. These experiences provide a multifaceted opportunity to teach, model, practice, and recognize Christian leadership—invaluable skills that serve our graduates for the rest of their lives.
