The Rose Terrace building is a historic building on the Mary Baldwin University campus in Staunton, Virginia. It was built about 1875, and is a 2 1/2-story, three bay, "L"-shaped, brick Italianate style building. It has a hipped roof and six handsome, tall chimneys with elaborately corbelled caps. Also on the property is a contributing small two-story outbuilding known a s "Little House."[3]

Rose Terrace was originally a single family residence, then housed Augusta Sanitarium from 1910 to 1919. The building was purchased by Mary Baldwin College in 1919. It was once used as the college president's home, but currently serves as a student dormitory.[4]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1979.[1]
