Welcome to the University Club!
The University Club of Portland has enjoyed a rich and colorful history since its founding in 1898 by a group of young college graduates.
Today, we are an accessible downtown Club serving our Members as a catalyst for fellowship, providing meeting rooms, food and beverage and entertainment. Our Membership roster includes professionals from the public and private sectors, business owners, lawyers, authors, entertainers, university administrators and professors, government officials and historians.
