Getting to SUU's Campus
Location is everything and ours is hard to beat. Our 130-acre campus is in the heart of Cedar City, which sits about halfway between Salt Lake City and Las Vegas on I-15 and is within a 5-hour drive of over 20 national parks and monuments in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada.
Being right off the interstate makes it pretty easy to get to SUU. It’s a 2.5-hour drive north from Vegas or a 3.5-hour drive south from Salt Lake. If you’re coming from the east, we’re just 75 miles south of the I-15 / I-70 junction.
There are daily flights between Cedar City Regional (CDC) and Salt Lake City International (SLC) airports. Many people also choose to fly into McCarran International (LAS) and make the 2.5-hour drive from Vegas in a rental car.
Ok, not really. Despite the presence of the nation’s tallest inland lighthouse, Cedar City is actually completely landlocked, so this really isn’t an option.
