About Rocky Vista University

Rocky Vista University has two campuses: one in Parker, Colorado and one currently being built in Ivins, Utah (slated for completion in 2017).

Colorado Campus:

The Colorado campus includes state-of-the-art technology, A.V. capabilities and educational support, which is evident throughout the approximately 145,000 square feet of campus and buildings of the University.

Replication of national standards established by certification and licensure agencies can be found in the human performance and simulation facilities. An environment conducive to learning is present throughout the facility and a hallmark of the predominately electronic library.

Future plans include development consisting of 50,000 additional square feet of facilities in Phase Two and up to 150,000 square feet of campus resources during Phase Three.

Currently consisting of 20 acres, the campus is scheduled to be increased to 40 acres with the development of additional health care colleges at the University.

The University employs more than 100 physicians, professors, researchers and ancillary staff. It seats approximately 150 students per year.Rocky Vista University

 

Utah Campus:

The Utah campus will be located on 32 acres in Ivins, Utah–approximately 20 minutes from St. George, the largest city in Southern Utah. The two-story building will be 104,000 square feet and will complement the natural scenery of the area. It will include two 200-seat lecture halls, three seminar rooms, 36 small group study rooms, a clinical skills and OPP lab, a full dissection gross anatomy lab, a multipurpose lab, a simulation center, standardized patient rooms, and a 9,000 square foot library.

It will also include a 23,000 square foot medical office building across the street, which will house administrative offices and a future medical clinic. Additionally, the Southern Utah Veterans Home is adjacent to the campus, which will provide students with a continuity of care experience.

Future plans include on-campus student housing.

It is expected to seat 125 students each year.Rendering_UtahLocation-NEW-20160413
