Dear Members,

The Victorian Premier has announced the resumption of Stage 3 restrictions, effective from midnight tonight for a period of six weeks. University House Professors’ Walk is therefore required to close to members.

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

The Committee has revised the decision to recommence salary deductions and direct debits on August 3.  Memberships will remain suspended until further notice.

Updates will be posted on our website, Facebook and weekly newsletter.

We sincerely hope that the measures put in place by the State Government will help bring the current outbreak under control, and that we can reopen our wonderful Club as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please continue to support each other and the Club during this difficult time. We are grateful to be a part of the University of Melbourne community and are looking forward to seeing you very soon – if not in person, on Zoom with our range of online activities. Many thanks to all Members who have supported the Club over the last weeks by coming in Professors’ Walk for breakfast, lunch and dinner, booking in for a function or ordering home delivery.

For any inquiries please email the General Manager, John Macaulay, at gm@unihouse.org.au.

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.

Function, Private Dining & Conference Information


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.
