Visiting a university campus can be a little overwhelming. We all need a little help in where to go, who to see, and what to do. The Rockford University Office of Admission is ready to personally greet all prospective students and their families and make sure they see everything they want to see – and even more.

To inquire about a visit, email or call the Office of Admission at 815-226-4050 or 800-892-2984.

Not only can you and your family see the campus, but you can also meet with an Admission Counselor who can help you through every step of the Admission process – from answering any questions you may have to helping you apply that very same day. In addition, your application fee will be waived when you fill out an application during your visit. Once you’ve set an appointment to visit, here’s how you’ll spend your time with us…

Rockford, Illinois, is located approximately 80 miles from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and 90 miles from downtown Chicago, Illinois. Directions to Rockford and Rockford University

Check in. The Admission Office is located on the first floor of the Blanche Walker Burpee Center. Check in at the front desk to meet with your Admission Counselor. Everything you’ll need will be ready upon your arrival.

Lunch. Lunch is on us! You’ll find our main cafeteria on the second floor of the Blanche Walker Burpee Center or check out the Lion's Den. Enjoy an amazing assortment of soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrees. But whatever you do, don’t forget to leave room for dessert.

Campus. We have 150 acres to explore, but don’t think you have to find everything yourself. We will arrange to have a Regent Guide take you from classrooms to residence halls and everything in between.

Attend a class. Interact with faculty and students while getting first-hand knowledge of what an actual Rockford University class is like during the academic year.

Parking. You’ll find that Rockford has ample parking. We think it’s best to park in Lot A - the large parking lot to the east of the main university road after you enter the campus from Business 20/East State Street.

Accommodations. During the academic year, we invite prospective students to stay overnight in a residence hall. You’ll meet other students and get a feel for what life at Rockford is really like. To make arrangements, contact the Office of Admission. Or we invite you to stay at one of the area hotels.
