Student Life

Student life at Rosemead is characterized by a unique supportive community. Rigorous studies and the integration of theology and psychology are key components of Rosemead's program, but your personal spiritual growth is just as important. Rosemead students join a Christian university community, providing opportunities for fellowship, dialogue and worship — vital parts of the total developmental process.

The Rosemead team is here to support you during your transition into our programs. This is a new chapter in your life, and we want to equip you with the tools and information you need to get started.


Off-campus housing is limited and not guaranteed to any Rosemead student. Early application is encouraged to increase chances of being accepted into university housing options. Biola University’s Housing Office can provide more information, and would be happy to assist you in finding non-Biola affiliated housing.
