Some of the nation's most acclaimed national parks and outdoor recreation opportunities surround Cedar City and provide the basis for a distinct educational partnership between the University and the National Park Service. A wider range of metropolitan activities is close at hand however, with Las Vegas, Nevada, just two-and-a-half hours south and Salt Lake City, Utah, just three hours north.

Sherratt Library, the J.L. Sorenson Physical Education Building, and the new South Hall.
