Why become a member?

The University Club offers numerous member benefits. As the Iowa City area's premier swim and tennis club, the University Club is the perfect place to relax with your family in the summer. Heat up with a tennis match or take a dip in the six-lane pool. Our prime location next to Finkbine Golf Course makes the Club the ideal place to add dinner or drinks to a day of golf.

During the rest of the year, the University Club provides members with numerous events, entertainment, and special holiday and themed meals. Come for a meal in the Dining Room and Lounge and enjoy personalized, attentive service. Hawkeye athletic fans enjoy free game parking year-round. Members may use banquet and meeting rooms for no charge.
