Travel to and from Salt Lake City

All students from outside the Salt Lake City area are expected to make their own travel arrangements to and from Salt Lake City. Students will also be responsible for making their own arrangements for transportation to and from the Salt Lake International Airport to the University of Utah campus.  The approximate cost for a cab from the airport to the University Guest House is $25 – $30 (not including tip).  Please tell the Cab Driver to take you to the Heritage Center on the campus of the University of Utah. Driving directions from the airport to housing is listed below. Utah Transit Authority Trax light rail system is a cost-effective way to transport to and from the airport.  Check the Trax schedule before purchasing plane tickets.  X-press shuttle is also an alternative airport transport system.  Please be sure to include arrival information on required forms. This will help us in our planning to meet students as they arrive at the dorms.
