Summer Conferences

The University of Utah Summer Conference Program is one of the premier conference programs in America. Conference groups from all over the world choose the University of Utah as their conference site and bring groups ranging in size from 10 - 1000 people in a variety of accommodations ranging from our on campus hotel to our suite style residence halls and apartments. Special events and dining options are our specialty.

Our summer conference season spans from May 22 through August 1. We can plan any portion or your entire event here on campus. We have both residence hall and hotel accommodations as well as 30,000 square feet of meeting space. We have an extensive list of catering and activity options for groups of all sizes.

More detailed information is presented below. For more information or to request space, please contact our conference office at 801-587-2906 or submit a Request Form.

The Heritage Commons Residence Halls were constructed for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and hosted the Athlete Village. They can accommodate approximately 1650 people. Our on campus hotel, the University Guest House, can house 180 guests year round. No matter how large your summer conference is, we can host it, and keep your guests happy and comfortable.
