Dear Members,

I do hope that you and your family are healthy and safe during these uncertain and terrifying times.

Due to the Melbourne’s Stage 4 restrictions University House Professors’ Walk remains closed.  This is devastating, but necessary.

Memberships remain suspended until further notice.

During the closure, the Club will continue to offer home delivered meals and great wine offers.  The menu changes weekly and I encourage you to give them a try.

Virtual events: Our online Quiz and our wine tastings have been very successful, with more than 80 people attending! These will continue along with our book club, club choir, poetry club, the career conversations. Please look at our UH weekly updates, website or Facebook for more information.

Please keep in touch! More than ever we need your support.

With best wishes,

Veronique Duché



The University Staff and
Alumni Club

University House is the staff and alumni club of The University of Melbourne.

It plays a vital role in University life, providing members with a space to socialise, relax and collaborate with fellow academics, professional staff and alumni from a wide range of disciplines. The Club allows for the fruitful exchange of ideas between members in disciplines represented across the University.

University House has two Member venues, each located within easy walking distance of University departments and five minutes from the city centre: University House Professors’ Walk and University House at The Woodward. The Club also has a venue open to the public in the Southbank precinct, University House at Lionel’s.

Connect & Celebrate

Hold your next key conference, meeting or celebration at University House. The Woodward and Professors’ Walk offer a variety of spaces and packages to meet the requirements of your next event whether it be a casual lunchtime meeting, private dinner, large conference or a wedding!

The Club offers private rooms for functions and conference facilities to the general public, and to Members of University House at special rates.

As the social heart of the University, University House offers a unique atmosphere to network with fellow alumni and members of staff. University House offers a sanctuary away from the bustle of the university and the city, whether you are coming for your morning coffee, or joining us for one of our exclusive wine dinners with the best vignerons and winemakers.
