Additional Information

The future of the University Club

On behalf of the UClub Board, I would like to express our appreciation for the loyalty and support our members have demonstrated over the years. The club is a space that means a lot to all of us.

The UClub has faced significant challenges in the past decade, leading up to and including this current pandemic. The Club has run a small deficit for most of the past decade. Our accessibility challenges (the lack of an elevator or accessible washrooms) have significantly slowed event bookings that are essential to our bottom line and to a culture of inclusivity.

A dedicated Transition Team has been assembled within Dalhousie to explore the possibilities for an accessible, sustainable University Club. Members from the Transition Team will be present at the AGM to answer your questions, as will members of our current Board.

During the AGM, we will be putting forth a motion to dissolve our not-for-profit Board and transfer responsibility for the University Club to Dalhousie University.
