Living in Utah

The University of Utah offers world-class graduate training in an ideal location. The University is located in beautiful (and affordable) Salt Lake City, with easy access to entertainment and recreation. Salt Lake City and nearby Park City are home to the annual Sundance Film Festival and a vibrant year-round cinema scene, as well as outstanding restaurants and brewpubs. Several national parks are located within a just few hours’ drive, and the university is within a 40-minute drive of at least six major alpine skiing and snowboarding resorts, including venues of the 2002 Olympics. Hiking and mountain biking trails begin essentially on campus. Outside Magazine recently called Salt Lake City "one of the nation's most underrated outdoor meccas". The city is also a major airline hub, with non-stop flights throughout the U.S. and Canada.
