Future Regent Days

Not only can you and your family see the campus, but you will also have access to your 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 Future Regent Day.

Upcoming Future Regent Days

Additional Information

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

Parking and campus. 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. View our Parking Map.

Not only is there easy accessibility to numerous shops, restaurants, malls and local events in Rockford, but you can enjoy them and return to the secluded ‘park-like’ setting that is Rockford University. View our Campus Map.

Overnight accomodations. 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.
