Whether you enjoy outdoor adventures or prefer staying indoors, you can find it all in Utah Valley! Located in Orem, just 45 minutes south of Salt Lake City, UVU is nestled between the beautiful Wasatch Mountains and Utah Lake. That means you can go skiing, water or snow, year round! Outdoor activities not your thing? No worries! There’s two major malls just minutes away from campus as well as a vibrant local art and music scene. Another major perk to living in Utah Valley is unique access to a dynamic economy, numerous employment and career opportunities. Utah Valley is the home to major companies such as Adobe, Novell, Tahitian Noni International and NuSkin. The valley is also the hub of many small, growing businesses. Most people who reside outside of Utah have never heard of Orem. But that doesn't mean it's not a great place to live! Orem, self-dubbed "Family City USA" is one of the safest communities in the nation.
