From its founding in 1897, Southern Utah University has evolved from a teacher training institution to now becoming Utah's designated liberal arts and sciences university. SUU has always placed students first by fostering small, personalized classes led by supportive professors who are some of the nation's top scholars in their fields of study.

True to the University's academic core vision of becoming a nationally recognized institution of learning, SUU faculty, staff and administrators enable students to honor thought in all its finest forms, achieve excellence in their chosen field, and create positive change in the world. People throughout the state look to the University for major academic specialties, economic and business development opportunities and training, distinguished cultural programs, athletic activities, and regional archives.

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.

SUU Campus

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.

Guided tours of the University are available by appointment. Please contact the SUU Admissions Welcome Center at (435) 586-7740 to schedule tours.

Student Life

SUU is so much more than attending classes and studying. By living on campus you are right in the middle of everything.... live, learn, work, study and socialize.

Student life can be pretty busy. So don't worry about food, we've got you covered. SUU Food Services provides a variety of food choices and meal plans.

SUU's bookstore provides for textbook needs, but they also sell other items. Apparel, electronics, school supplies; there is a large variety here.

Clubs & Student Involvement

Student Computing
There are 27 computer labs on campus and the student to computer ratio is 8:1. We've got the technology to keep your learning experience up-to-date.

Student Support Center
The student support center houses many essential services on campus. Included in those are mentoring, disability services and the multi-cultural center. Students are welcome to stop by and discuss their needs with the knowledgeable staff.

Writing Center

By providing job postings on- and off-campus, Human Resources helps students find employment, both during their time at SUU.

SUU has a very safe campus with low crime rates, thanks to our SUU Police office. They provide law enforcement to the SUU campus and is one of the most highly trained offices in the state.
