About the Club

The University Club is the perfect meeting spot for members, the ideal location for business and social entertaining and a convenient base for out-of-towners.

Voted one of the top twenty distinguished City Clubs in America, The University Club of Washington, DC has established itself as a city club destination of choice. The hallmarks of our Club are, as they have always been, elegance and tradition, health and sociability, and a celebration of intellectual pursuits.
