Our 27-acre campus is nice and small, so you never have to worry about being late to class. Our classrooms, labs, art studios, and residence halls are surrounded by trees and green spaces, and Emigration Creek runs through the heart of campus. On a sunny day you're sure to find students studying in the Commons or lounging in hammocks between classes. If you're really lucky, you might even hear the bells that chime every day at noon and 5 p.m.
Salt Lake City
Westminster is located in the offbeat Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, where you'll find restaurants, movie theaters, shops, parks, and coffee shops all within walking distance. Here, you're less than an hour away from 10 world-class ski resorts and just 10 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. And you get a free UTA pass so you can hop downtown for a Jazz game or the monthly gallery stroll even if you don't have a car).
Utah is home to some of the best outdoor recreation in the country. Westminster's campus is just 4 hours from 5 national parks: Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyonlands. And we have a pretty cool art scene too. The Sundance Film Festival takes place in Park City every year and if music's your thing, you can check out the annual Twilight Concert Series (When tickets only cost $5 you can afford to see Modest Mouse and Lupe Fiasco and MGMT)
