University Club

Welcome to the University Club!

The University Club is located in Dobson Road on the Sandy Bay Campus, just down from the School of Chemistry Building. It provides a pleasant environment for members to enjoy a morning coffee and tasty lunches.

  • The Coffee Lounge is open from 9.30 am to 11.30 am each day. Members are issued with a loyalty card which gives a free coffee for every seven that are purchased.
  • Lunches are served from 11.45am through to 2.15 pm Monday to Friday.


Membership is open to all staff of the University, visitors and others associated with the University, Honours and graduate students. Partners of members can also join the Club. Many members continue their membership well after their retirement from employment at the University.

Members can sign in guests. However, a guest can only be signed in for a very limited number of occasions if they are entitled to be a member in their own right.

Membership is inexpensive! Download an Application Form (PDF 222.8KB).

Please email the Membership Officer for any membership enquiries.

The University Club is a non-profit incorporated association run for the benefit of members. You can find more information by downloading the Constitution and Rules of the Club (PDF 44KB).


Each year the Club arranges several special events for members. These include a St Patrick's Day lunch, and the very popular Melbourne Cup lunch on the first Tuesday of November. More details can be found on the Events page.


The Club's caterer is the Pickled Pear headed by Christine Delpero. Christine and her team provide the lunch and coffee services and cater for Club and University events. All arrangements for the use of the Club's facilities, including booking rooms for meetings, should be made through Christine on +61 3 6226 2493 or via email.
