Club Membership

Club Membership

The University of Massachusetts has provided its faculty, staff and friends a private club for over 75 years.  For many years it was known as The Faculty Club, but was renamed the University Club in 2002.  Most recently, The University Club & Restaurant opened its homes for public dining in 2008.

We still honor our heritage as a faculty club by maintaining all the accoutrements and atmosphere of a classic faculty club.  Members of the University Club still enjoy the same rights and privileges as before.  There are areas of the club reserved for members, and they have priority in making reservations or booking meeting rooms.

There is always room for members and non-members alike and we are proud of our capacity to welcome everyone who visits our house.
