The seminary houses one of the finest evangelical libraries in Europe. The V. G. Greisen Memorial Library serves as the center for academic endeavors outside the classroom. Currently more than 45,000 volumes in English, Dutch, French, and German are in its collections, including several historical collections. Additionally, the school subscribes to academic journals, magazines, and periodicals in various languages. CTS is also a part of the ATLA Consortium of European Evangelical Schools that uses the services of EBSCO Publishing and provides the students with access to the online ATLA Religion Database with ATLA serials.

Student Computer Lab
In the student computer lab, a standard set of academic software tools are provided that include word processing, spreadsheets, and presentation software. The lab also provides full access to the Internet, electronic mail, World Wide Web, a laser printer, and other local networked resources.
Personal Tutorial Program
Through the Personal Tutorial Program (PTP), each student will be assigned to a tutor (a member of faculty) upon arrival at CTS. Tutors are available to offer advice and to discuss any problems the student might have, be they academic or personal. The PTP is a tool for students to use when monitoring and planning their academic and personal skills development.
Writing Style Manual
A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations by Kate L. Turabian has been adopted by the faculty as the standard style for all writing assignments at Continental Theological Seminary. During their first semester, students will be introduced to this style and use it throughout their studies at Continental.
