University Guest House and Conference Center

Salt Lake City



Situated just outside of downtown Salt Lake City, the University Guest House and Conference Center offers a charming locale for a lovely wedding day in Utah! Imagine exchanging your most sacred vows in the non-denominational Post Chapel, a historic house of spirituality that will harken back to gentler times and create an intimate atmosphere that is ideal for a hosting a heartwarming ceremony. If you would rather say your “I do’s” in the great outdoors, consider holding your ceremony in the quaint Gothic Revival Bandstand with stunning views of the Salt Lake Valley as your backdrop! Celebrate your union in the spacious University Guest House ballroom, which boasts beautiful views of the Valley, an expansive dance floor, and a walk-out patio with handsome sandstone fireplace. For a smaller wedding reception, look to the historic Commander’s House, which boasts a timelessly elegant feel thanks to the hardwood floors and original late 19th century chandeliers!
