The Utah Department of Corrections encourages family and friends of inmates to visit them as their privilege level allows. Visitors must be approved and must make an appointment prior to visiting.
Email is our main source of communication. Please look out for changes or cancelations to visits.
Studies have shown that inmates who visit regularly with supporters have a markedly improved chance of success when they are eventually released back into the community.
It is, however, important to review visitation regulations prior to attempting to meet with an offender, whether he or she is housed at the Utah State Correctional Facility, Central Utah Correctional Facility or in one of the county jails.
You can find information about our regulations below, as well as current visiting schedules here.
Please check our website regularly to find out whether any special conditions apply to the facility you plan to visit. The conditions may change daily.
Please arrive 10 minutes early for video visiting and 30 minutes early for in-person visiting.

While the prison and its personnel do understand the inconvenience not being able to visit can cause, we appreciate your help in maintaining public health and safety.
