Our History

The UC (AKA the Club or the University Club) first opened in 1969 as a private club to serve faculty, staff, visiting professors and other persons with ties to the University. The UC primarily served as a social club that gained popularity through lunches, evening dances, and monthly featured dinner menus. Since then, UW Food Services has taken over the day-to-day operations beginning in the late 1990's. Annual memberships were removed in 2005 as the University Club operated as a sit-down restaurant for lunch service and the occasional dinner services for special events.  

During the pandemic, the University Club was utilized as a food delivery service for students predominantly living in residence. Through Food Services’ on-line ordering and delivery app, a multi-menu offering was created where customers and students could order, pay, and have meals delivered from the University Club to their residence.  This service further evolved in February 2022 to an “open house” operation where anyone could enter the University Club for food pick-up  or eat in a more casual setting.

In May of 2022, infrastructure renovations to the grounds around the University Club required the restaurant to temporarily close.

We are excited to share that due to overwhelming support and ethusiasm from the university community, we are reopening The UC on September 27th!
