Parking / Shuttle

Please utilize this PDF map. Once on campus, look for signs directing you towards employer parking. Free parking and shuttles to the union are provided for all recruiters. Parking in front of the union is self-pay; Career & Professional Development Center will not be providing parking validation.

The shuttle will only be running from 7:30-10:00am and 1:30-4:00pm. Please plan accordingly. 

Unloading / Loading

If you plan to bring large displays, which may be difficult to carry on the shuttle, it is best if you park in the Self-Pay Parking Lot in front of the Union. The first 15 minutes are free. Once finished unloading, you are welcome to stay in the Self-Pay Parking Lot but the Career & Professional Development Center will not be providing validations. You can also drive back to the Free Parking Lot and take the shuttle.

In adherence of ADA and Campus Policies, parking in the handicap parking spots or the shuttle/bus drop-off area in the front of the Union is prohibited. Please do not stop here to unload or load your vehicle. You may be ticketed or towed.


Free WiFi is available throughout the Union building under the UGuest network. You do not need a password.

Employer Display

Please plan your display accordingly as you are allotted only one (1) 6’ table. An additional table can be purchased at the time of registration. In addition, the University of Utah Career Fairs are green fairs & we encourage you to minimize hand-outs and pre-packaged giveaways. Also please do not bring food items for students other than small, individually-wrapped treats.
