 Visit Our Campus!

Discover Rosedale

Discover Rosedale is a three-day (Thursday evening-Saturday morning) event for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in attending Rosedale Bible College. You can find out more about Discover Rosedale on the Discover Rosedale home page.

Individual Visit

Visiting Campus is great way to see firsthand what life is like at Rosedale. Imagine yourself here by visiting classes, meeting faculty, staying in the resident dorms, and joining our students for chapel, meals, and campus activities. Chapel is scheduled Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and these days are preferable for a campus visit, but we will gladly accommodate your schedule.





Group Visit

 Be Our Guest with your friends!

We invite you to bring a group of three or more prospective students, accompanied by a sponsor, to visit Rosedale Bible College and enjoy first hand the Rosedale experience. It could be your youth pastor with your church youth group, your high school guidance counselor with classmates, your parents with cousins or best friends!

Complete the form below and return it to the Admissions Office at least two weeks before the visit. The ideal time to visit is Thursday night and Friday, but we welcome you any time classes are in session.

Rosedale Bible College will reimburse your qualified group for fuel expenses up to $100 when all arrangements have been made with the Director of Enrollment Services prior to the visit. While you are here, you may:

  • Join us for chapel at 9:35 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday.
  • Tour our campus.
  • Visit a class or two. (See the Course Schedule)
  • Talk with a professor.
  • Discuss financial aid options. 
  • Eat in our dining hall.
  • Participate in our evening activities.
  • Spend a night in one of our residence halls.* 

*Minors ages 16 or 17 need to bring a consent form signed by their parents to stay in the dorms. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted to stay in the dorms unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, or as part of an RBC-sponsored event.

Guest Services

RBC is pleased to share its community and campus with a variety of visitors, from prospective students and their families to friends of current students, to participants in seminars and conferences. When available space is limited, priority is generally given to prospective students and event participants who arrange their lodging through school offices.

Prospective students and their families who arrange their visit in advance with the director of enrollment services are generally provided at least one night’s lodging and one day’s cycle of meals at no charge. All others should arrange payment with the residence hall directors (dormitory guests) or the business office (campus apartment guests). 


Our food services director, Bill Burns, and his staff are pleased to offer meals at the following times and rates:

It is not the Sheraton, but you are most welcome, and you will get a much better picture of college life at RBC. Minors ages 16 or 17 need to bring a consent form signed by their parents to stay in the dorms. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted to stay in the dorms unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, or as part of an RBC-sponsored event. The rates are:

$8 per night (An extra fee will be charged if RBC provides linens.)

RBC Campus Apartments

Campus apartments are available for lease to college staff and married students, and unoccupied units are also available for visiting families.

The apartment house consists of eleven units—two with three bedrooms, two with two bedrooms and seven with one bedroom. Most bedrooms have one double bed available. Linens and towels are supplied.

Each unit has a private bath and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a common laundry room for tenants.

The apartment house is located northeast of the men’s dormitory. It is accessible to the rest of campus by a sidewalk and also has its own parking lot access from Rosedale-Milford Center Road. See the campus map for further information.
