About The University Club

Founded in 1906, The University Club has proudly called the city of Madison home for over a century. Located in the heart of downtown, and just steps from State Street and the Capital Square; the club has long served as a center for the political, intellectual, and social life of both The University of Wisconsin Madison and the surrounding community. Breathtaking, turn of the century, Tudor revival architecture greets you as you enter, and picture perfect views of Lake Mendota, the Memorial Union, and Bascom Hill, await you as you leave. The University Club’s historic charm and elegance will remind you that you are in a place where both history and memories are made. Whether you are having a cocktail on our beautiful open air veranda, enjoying a meal in our public dining room, or hosting your friends and family for that extra special event in any one of our private spaces The University Club’s unparalleled beauty and exquisite cuisine will provide for a truly unique experience. We invite you to join us and discover why we are considered one of Madison’s premier historic venues.
