Experience MBU

Whether you were first introduced to MBU through word-of-mouth, a school sponsored event, or our website, we know that the most powerful impressions are made in person. If you’re considering Maranatha, we want to get to know you and help you discover if MBU is the next step on God’s path for your life. We can’t wait to meet you face-to-face and show you a taste of college life. When you visit our beautiful campus, located in southeastern Wisconsin, you’ll have opportunity to tour the campus, stay in the dorms, attend classes and chapel, eat in the Dining Complex, meet with faculty members and coaches, and enjoy college activities.

As a prospective student (9th-12th grade), you may stay two nights in the dorms for no cost and receive three free meal tickets. All Overnight Dorm Guests: Please notify Guest Relations concerning your desire to stay in the dorms at least 48 hours in advance. 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). Just bring yourself, your own bedding, and a towel!

Traveling with a prospective student?

You can make reservations for an on-campus Maranatha Guest Suite upon availability or stay at a local hotel. 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 meet you. 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 soon!
