Set in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountain range, the University of Utah has a vantage point like no other. Inspiring views complement perspectives learned in classrooms and labs, and bespeaks the vast opportunities campus provides.
On July 1, 2011, it became official:
The U is a member of the PAC-12 Conference. To commemorate, the state declared it PAC-12 Day with a ceremony on the Capitol steps.
Forty minutes from 7 world-class resorts, the U attracts a wide range of winter sport enthusiasts, like these jibbers that participate in the annual Campus Rail Jam.
We are only minutes from rugged mountain bike trails or downtown amenities; the Utah State Capitol, the rich cultural history of the Western pioneers, and the allure of a modern metropolis await.
After proving itself as the original "BCS buster" (including wins in the 2005 Fiesta Bowl and 2009 Sugar Bowl), Utah Football and the rest of Utah Athletics accepted an invitation to join the PAC-12 Conference. Utah's sporting prowess isn't the only reason the U was asked to join one of the nation's premier conferences -- the university's academic achievements and strong scientific research played a major part in the PAC-12's invitation. With a new set of schools to compete with, all boasting rich traditions in athletics and academics, it's an exciting time to be a part of the University of Utah! More Athletics»

Salt Lake City is big enough to have great restaurants and pubs, arts and entertainment—including the Utah Symphony, Ballet West, Utah Opera, many theater companies, a professional basketball team (the NBA's Utah Jazz) and a professional soccer team (Real Salt Lake of the MLS)—and it's small enough to make it all so accessible.
