A Place Where Students Thrive Mentally, Physically and Emotionally

Our campus has been intentionally designed to support the values of the university and the needs of our students, from academic rigor and inquiry to holistic wellness and our commitment to cultivating a diverse, engaged sense of community. 

With 97 acres and 1,288,241 square feet of facilities, the campus is big enough to provide space for our many programs, labs, and activities (with room to grow!), yet small enough to feel comfortably like home.

  • Since 1974, our campus has been located in North Chicago, approximately 35 miles north of downtown Chicago, 45 miles south of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and less than two miles from the sandy Lake Michigan shoreline.
  • RFU’s cutting-edge academic facilities and technology (like our network of six simulation labs) support our hands-on, Interprofessional approach to teaching and learning.
  • Our campus is also geared toward student life and community-building. Everything from a fitness center and cafe to on-campus housing, athletic fields, and plenty of spaces for collaborative studying or student organization meetings and events promote a close, connected sense of community.
  • Our location gives students access to a variety of clinical environments and models in the surrounding area, including inner-city hospitals, the Federal Health System, and private clinics and practice settings.
