Southern Utah Location

Rocky Vista University – Southern Utah (RVU-SU) is located on 32 acres in Ivins, Utah, overlooking the majestic Red Rock Mountains. The city of Ivins is in the southwest corner of the state, just outside of St. George.┬áThe two-story, 104,000 square foot building was designed to complement the natural scenery of the area. The facility includes two 200-seat lecture halls, three seminar rooms, 36 small-group study rooms, 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. There is a medical office building across the street from the campus which will house administrative offices and a future medical clinic that will provide clinical training opportunities for students (as well as health services to the community). The Southern Utah Veterans Home is adjacent to the campus and provides the students with a continuity of care experience.

The city of Ivins is a quiet community of 7,000 that is a mixture of the modern and the rustic. Its rich history and rugged beauty make it a prime destination for both nature lovers and history buffs. With a semi-arid climate, the summers are warm and the winters are brief and cool.
