The University of Utah campus is perched above the blossoming Salt Lake City metropolitan area. Salt Lake City has evolved from a small outpost in the Wild West into a thriving metropolis that boasts an excellent business climate, technology hub, incredible natural beauty, world-class arts and entertainment opportunities, and a standard of living that can’t be beat anywhere in the United States.
University of Utah students have free access to Utah’s public transportation system. Easily explore downtown Salt Lake City, head to the ski slopes and access the airport.
Taking a break from studying? Unwind by hitting the slopes, with a bike ride, by taking a local fitness class or by supporting a local farmer’s market.
