visit mbu


Come and get a taste of college life at MBU. Take a campus tour, stay in the dorms, attend classes and chapel, dine with MBU students, meet with faculty members, meet with a coach, and participate in college activities. As a prospective student (9th-12thgrade), you may stay two nights in the dorms for no cost and receive three free meal tickets. Please bring your own bedding and a towel. While we invite you to visit any time, you may not stay in the dorms on Saturday/Sunday nights and college black-out dates (listed below).

Traveling with a prospective student?


You can make reservations for a Maranatha Guest Suite upon availability or stay at an Area Hotel.

Maranatha is located in southeastern Wisconsin. For visitors who don’t live within driving distance to Maranatha, Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) is the closest airport to campus. Those who fly into Milwaukee can take the Badger Bus to the Johnson Creek bus stop where Maranatha’s Guest Relations shuttle service can get you the rest of the way here. Maranatha’s shuttle service is free to prospective students. Please check the Badger Bus website for current prices and schedule. Then call Maranatha’s Guest Relations at (920) 206-2370 to arrange a shuttle

When scheduling your visit, please make your reservation at least 10 days before you arrive. Let us know if we can be of any help along the way. We hope to see you very soon!
