| Campus Locations


Rocky Vista University (RVU) was founded in 2006 in Parker, Colorado. RVU is a rapidly growing institution with two locations and two states, which has a special mission: RVU provides healthcare education while inspiring students to serve with compassion, integrity, and excellence.

RVU has empowered students who bring unique skills and experiences to contribute to our community of learning. Through rigorous academic programs, and with the help of esteemed faculty, our students learn to ask the right questions, listen for answers, and solve problems using their hands and their minds.

The founding campus is located in the town of Parker, Colorado—just 20 miles southeast of Denver. The community is known for its excellent school system, extensive biking and jogging trails, recreational facilities, dining, and entertainment, as well as a wide variety of arts and community events held throughout the year.

The technologically advanced, 145,000 square foot facility boasts auditoriums, laboratories, a simulation center, and study areas that have been professionally engineered to develop a positive learning environment. This includes a standardized patient lab that has been designed and equipped to replicate the testing facilities of the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners, as well as the US Medical Licensing Examination.

Rocky Vista University’s second location is in Ivins, Utah, approximately 15 minutes from downtown St. George. The community is known for it's beautiful sunny weather, 45 minutes to Zion National Park and surrounded by several State Parks. The community has hiking, mountain biking, outdoor Tuacahn amphitheater and more.

The two-story 104,000 square feet academic center complements the natural scenery of the area. It includes two 200-seat lecture halls, three seminar rooms, 36 breakout rooms, an osteopathic clinical skills lab, a full dissection gross anatomy lab, a multipurpose/neuroanatomy/ultrasound lab, a simulation center, standardized patient rooms, and a 4,300 square foot library. The Southern Utah (RVUCOM-SU) campus also includes a 23,000 square foot medical office building across the street, for administrative offices and a future medical clinic. Additionally, the Southern Utah Veterans Home, which is adjacent to the campus provides students with the longitudinal care experience.

Rocky Vista University’s third location is in Billings, Montana. Billings, sitting along the Yellowstone River and the famous Rimrocks, is known as Montana’s Trailhead because it serves as the border between western Montana’s mountains and Eastern Montana’s plains and badlands. Billings is an urban city offering modern amenities, exceptional views, outdoor recreation, and award-winning cuisine. Billings is the medical hub for two thirds of Montana and portions of bordering states. Although Billings is the largest city in Montana, it boasts small-town hospitality! 

The Rocky Vista University Montana College of Osteopathic Medicine branch campus is located on 12.8 acres and will house a 138,000 square foot technologically advanced campus, complete with a full simulation lab, student medical library, expansive lecture hall, and plenty of light and green space to fully enjoy the big sky of Montana. RVU-MCOM is the first medical school in the state of Montana with a dedicated campus and is expected to serve its first students in 2023.
