Rockford University Campus

Experience Regent Life

By now, you may have read a little (or a lot) about us, seen some images of our campus, and also maybe heard from a few current students or alums about their experiences here on our campus.

We’d love to show and tell you more—in fact, we believe the best way to get to know us is to visit our departments, classrooms, athletic facilities, library, performing and visual arts venues, food and recreation centers, and beautiful pathways within our park-like, 150-acre campus.

If you haven’t seen our campus, you’re missing out.
