Located in Cedar City, Southern Utah University is in the heart of Utah’s color country. As part of the American Southwest’s Grand Circle region, the area is close in proximity to the largest concentration of national parks and monuments in the nation. A brief 40-minute drive from SUU will land you in the “greatest snow on Earth” for spectacular skiing and snowboarding. In the opposite direction, you can access year-round sunshine, golfing and a host of other outdoor recreational opportunities. Metropolitan offerings are also not far, with Salt Lake City three hours to the north and the entertainment capital of the world—Las Vegas—just over two hours to the south.
Campus facilities vary from the historical Old Main and Braithwaite Liberal Arts Center building built in 1898 and 1899 to the Dixie Leavitt Business Building, to the Centrum special events center and classroom building, the Science Center, the Gerald R. Sherratt Library, the J.L. Sorenson Physical Education Building, and the new South Hall. As the home of the Utah Shakespearean Festival, SUU also features one of the world's most authentic Shakespearean stages and the Randall L. Jones Performing Arts Theatre.
