Westminster College

Introduction

The only private, independent college in Utah, Westminster College has a proud tradition of academic excellence.

Located in Salt Lake City near the Wasatch Mountains, Westminster provides a learning environment that is as unique and nurturing as its beautiful surroundings. Although the campus has undergone many changes over the past century, including a recently finished Residential Village and classrooms equipped with the very latest in technology, our commitment to outstanding education has not. Our faculty are here because they love to teach and work with students one-on-one. In our small classes, students receive the individual attention they need for success and are encouraged to discover their passions.
