Salt Lake City

Utah is widely praised for its scenic beauty. Recreational activities like mountain biking, fishing, snowboarding, and skiing at eight world-class resorts are just a short drive from the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City. Utah also boasts five national parks and more than 40 state parks that provide opportunities like hiking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting and camping. Meanwhile, Salt Lake City is home to professional sports teams such as Real Salt Lake and the Utah Jazz as well as the University of Utah’s nationally-ranked football, basketball and gymnastic teams. There also are cultural gems to experience such as the celebrated Sundance Film Festival, Ballet West, the Utah Symphony, and one of the nation’s largest and most successful Comic Con gatherings. And our reputation is only growing.
