The University Women’s Club is situated in the heart of Mayfair, London. It has a fascinating heritage and our membership includes many high achieving women working across industry, government and academia.
The Club was first mooted in 1883 when Miss Gertrude Jackson of Girton College, Cambridge, called a meeting at her Portman Square home, attended by 60 people, to discuss the idea of a club for University Women. It was formally founded in 1886.
Today, The University Women’s Club is wholly owned and managed by its members and remains true to the aspirations of its founders. It provides a welcoming environment and pleasant accommodation in Central London for Graduate, Professional and Business women.
Members and their guests are expected to adhere to a minimum level of smart casual dress. Please note that shorts and singlets are not permitted in the Dining Room.
