Who we are

Welcome.

The University Club is a private social and recreational club — and a legendary piece of local history, having played host to a “who’s who” list of Saint Paulites for more than a century. We’re known for a certain amount of refinement and our treasured traditions, but in spite of our iconic status, we’re anything but stuffy. We’ve facilitated a community in the very best sense of the word.

Over that same century, the University Club has provided the backdrop to a million smaller moments: an intimate Friday night dinner for two; Scotch tastings; the incomparably festive annual Fezziwig Christmas ball; lazy afternoons by the pool with family; invigorating workouts; and lively meetings of book clubs, the Investment Club, the Wine Club, and numerous other “Clubs within the Club.”

These moments string together to make up a full and rich life. That’s why generations of Twin Citians have said: “I’ll see you at the Club.” Our members are Families. Retirees. CEOs. Teachers. Writers. Physicians. Artists. Students. Stay-at-home parents. Jugglers. (We’ve seen it.) They represent a fascinating, inspiring slice of Twin Cities life, and for all their differences, they share a common appreciation for good conversation, good food, and good times.

With versatile amenities and a packed calendar of events and programming for the whole family, the University Club becomes deeply integrated into the lives of its members. They choose the University Club for their biggest moments —weddings, anniversary parties, and corporate events — and their everyday memories.

This is your club. This is where you’ll unwind, and it’s also where you’ll keep the celebration going. It’s going to be your “I can’t wait until…” and your “Remember when?”

With more than 100 years of history, if these walls could talk, oh, the stories they’d tell. Ready to start the best chapter of your own story? Step inside. We think you'll love it here.
