Founded by the pioneers of education for women, the University Women’s Club is a welcoming and secure environment for professional, business, student and graduate women.
For the past 130 years, the Club has offered itself to members as a retreat from the stresses of London, as a resource with our Library and intellectual events and as a network for busy women to meet and engage with like-minded individuals.
Women of all ages and backgrounds, with a variety of careers as scientists, teachers, writers, artists, musicians, diplomats, lawyers, businesswomen, academics and doctors meet in the comfortably appointed rooms to talk, read, enjoy each other’s company and entertain friends. Men are welcome at all times as guests and may stay in the en-suite rooms if booked in by a member.
Young Members enjoy a diverse social programme including special Under 35 events. Our affiliation with the Inter-Club Group allows our Young Members the opportunity to socialise with Under 35 members from other clubs across London.
Our gracious home in Audley Square was purchased from the Russell Family in 1921, and its garden-adjacent Dining Room, wood-panelled Library and elegant Drawing Room are much loved and used by our members. It provides a friendly base in an often hectic city.
The Clubhouse also has 22 bedrooms for use by our members and their guests and reciprocal members. Affordably priced, the rooms offer a warm and comfortable stay.
We welcome all candidates for application and invite them to register their interest with the Club. We hold an Open Evening once a month offering women the opportunity to explore the Club and meet elected members before completing their application form. These are always convivial occasions when friendships are forged and connections made. We look forward to seeing you soon!
