The University Inn & Conference Center began construction in 1980 and opened its doors on November 17, 1981 thanks to a grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, a philanthropic organization established in 1930. The Kellogg Foundation's philanthropic interests included enabling adults to continue their education informally throughout their lives. With this in mind, the Foundation provided funding to build seven Kellogg continuing education centers on university campuses throughout the United States, and Utah State University is fortunate to have been one of these recipients.

The Kellogg funding made it possible to build three structures, the Eccles Conference Center, the University Inn, and the Parking Terrace in the central part of the USU campus. Together, the structures were identified as the Kellogg Life Span Learning Complex, which was dedicated specifically to support USU's continuing education programs. The complex provides groups and organizations year-round access to convenient conference facilities and lodging in an appealing and educational environment. Now known as the University Inn & Conference Center, no traditional USU classes are taught in these buildings as they remain dedicated to the original intent.
