  • Overview
The Thomas S. Monson Center serves as an embassy for the University of Utah downtown and as a community gathering place. Thanks to a generous gift from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and other community donors, the university restored this magnificent facility to its original form. The center provides a world class venue for university functions and serves as home for an applied economic and demographic research center. We also invite the community to use this venue as a premier gathering place for private functions.
