A Message from the President

Welcome to the UCD University Club.

The Club provides a space and place where our University community meets socially and professionally, and where we offer hospitality to alumni, visiting faculty and partners of the University.

Encompassing O’Reilly Hall, the UCD University Club provides the ideal venue for the meetings, conferences, dinners and receptions. We also welcome the wider community to use the facilities.

I hope that you enjoy your UCD University Club experience, and I look forward to meeting you there.
