BEAU is just 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, where you can take in the local arts scene, dine and shop. At the historic Temple Square, you can visit the beautiful temple grounds. At nearby City Creek Center, you can experience world-class shopping and dining, or head to Sugar House, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods and the go-to area for bookshops, art galleries and hip eateries.
If you find creative inspiration in nature, you’re in luck. BEAU is surrounded by the Wasatch and Oquirrh mountains. With beautiful vistas all around you, you’ll feel relaxed and inspired, no matter the time of day. Within minutes from campus, you can hike, camp, ski and snowboard. Take a half-hour drive to Park City and enjoy outdoor activities, from hiking and mountain biking to outdoor concerts and arts festivals.
