The University Club provides a private and intimate setting for your wedding reception. If you book your special event with us, you get the use of the entire facility. Our facility has a beautiful room right off of the main lobby known as "the Library". This room boasts a fireplace, baby grand piano, rich leather furniture, mahogany bookshelves and an elegant, mahogany built-in bar. The Library is a great room for hors d’ oeuvres & cocktails while your guests are arriving for your event or it can also be used for your indoor ceremony site accommodating up to 130 people.

The trees around the perimeter of the building are wrapped in white lights for an intimate and romantic setting.

We have our reception in uci university club on august 24. It was amazing and fulfilling.
The venue looks pretty, especially during the night when the up lights are on. The foods are good. Our guests love the New York style steak, chicken and portobello mushroom meals a lot.
Cindy Lee and Carissa are our wedding coordinators. They are really really nice and professional in organizing the whole event. They worked with us and come out a good timeline. And also provided us with a lot of useful information, such as DJ recommendations, vendors, etc. At the reception day, they decorated the room, the dessert table, guest book table in such a nice way that totally beyond our expectation.
The whole reception went very smooth and sweet. Both I and my husband felt so so so happy. And the cost is also within our budget. Highly recommend!

Cindy is the wedding coordinator and is amazing! She is very friendly, professional, and helpful. Don't know what we would have done without her. She helped us have our dream wedding at this beautiful venue. Outdoor ceremony with all the greenery was perfect on a late August afternoon with cocktail hour outside in the courtyard. The reception was inside the U Club and was beautifully decorated with flowers, linens, Chivari chairs, candles, etc. Everything was perfect and Cindy is very flexible so we were able to get our dream wedding on a budget. Thanks for everything!

My husband and I enjoyed a very awesome Rehearsal Dinner at UCI's University Club. We are both anteaters, so it was a lot of fun pre-celebrating the wedding at a place we both know and love so well. The U Club is a great venue even if you aren't a UCI Alum - we (by that I mean my amazing mother-in-law and two sister-in-laws) did an amazing job decorating, and they even had a whole A/V system set up for a (rather embarrassing) slide show. Parking was a breeze, food was great - buffet style, and the staff were wonderful. It was a really fun night!

We booked our daughter's wedding at the University Club with the comfort and convenience of our guests in mind. It is a beautiful location with a gazebo for the ceremony, a library for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and a lovely dining room overlooking trees and greenery. Ample free parking was also appreciated by our guests. But the most compelling reason to have our wedding at UCI was Cindy. I can't say enough about how helpful and instrumental Cindy was in having things go so smoothly. Her years of experience in this business were so evident. Her enthusiasm and energy are incomparable and made things so much fun! The time spent willing to work with me to tweak the menu was so appreciated. And the guests all remarked how light and fresh the food was - even the steamed vegetables were perfectly cooked and fresh. We chose to do a buffet to accommodate all the guests' food preferences, and included a carving station. It was all a big hit! Cindy's advice as to how many hors d'oeuvre trays were needed for the cocktail hour was spot on - people felt the food "just kept coming." Exactly what I wanted the guests to feel - that they were being well taken care of. It seemed like Cindy was in a million places at once, checking on things, and following up. The lights on the trees, visible from all the dining room windows, are magical as the sun goes down - a very charming place. If I had it to do all over, I would do the wedding exactly the same way as long as Cindy was at the helm! And I should mention, the University Club is far more affordable than many other places. You'd be crazy not to check this place out for a wedding or any other special event.

We couldn't have chosen a better venue for our wedding! From the moment I met Cindy I knew that she was the coordinator to go with. She automatically made me feel as though I was a family member to her!

Not only do they offer the best value for their services, but she goes above and beyond to accommodate and meet your wedding dreams. She doesn't let a thing slip and has amazing vendor referrals! We used all of the vendors she recommended and we couldn't be happier. This is a one-stop deal- you find her and the venue and she will guide you to everything else!

The day of- she didn't miss a beat and when we were running a few minutes behind she made sure to make up for it elsewhere. She makes you feel at ease throughout the evening because by this point you've learned to trust her and realIze that she will get things done just the way you expect them to if not better.

Thank you Cindy for being our Wedding fairy! We had the wedding of our dreams!

The UCI University Club is a beautiful venue, including a wonderful outdoor gazebo to perform ceremonies, a library for cocktail hours, and a beautifully lit dining room for dinner receptions. This past year they added more lighting to the outdoor area as well as the dining room, which create a super elegant and romantic scene.
Best of all, the University Club comes with your own personal day-of-wedding coordinator! Cindy Lee is energetic, personable, and easy to work with. She worked with us on everything from how the butter was prepared to which tablecloths looked better. Cindy also has a fantastic list of vendors, which she offers to all her clients. We chose our photographer, chair vendor, and DJ off her list and could not have been happier with their service. Cindy is also very patient and flexible. My family and I asked so many questions and changed our minds so many times, but she remained calm and did everything she could to accommodate us. She allowed us to bring our own wine, a lot of our own decorations, and for our family to create our flower arrangements and dessert/cake.
My wedding was primarily planned by my mom and me. Both of us are big time perfectionists, so we planned every detail of the wedding. We drew pictures of how the rooms and tables should be set up, labeled all our boxes of decorations, and provided excel sheets with peoples names, the food they ordered, and who should sit next to who. Cindy was super patient with us and made sure that she understood everything perfectly.
Planning a wedding is crazy no matter what, but if you choose to work with Cindy, your wedding day will run more smoothly than you could imagine. Neither my husband nor I had to lift a finger on our wedding day. Even crazier… our wedding party did not have to help set up, tear down, etc. Two of our groomsmen, very recently married, said that this was the most relaxing wedding they had ever been to. Thanks to Cindy every detail of our wedding came out perfectly!

Planning a wedding without the assistance of a wedding planner can get a little hectic and stressful at times, as many of you brides to be will know. This is why when we first met Cindy at the University Club, we knew this was the venue for us. She was very knowledgable in all things wedding related. She is also very personable and friendly. She gave us examples/pros and cons for every option and let us decide what will work best for our wedding. She patiently answered our countless questions and went along with changes so easily. She was there on the day of the wedding to ensure everything went smoothly. All her vendor recommendations were terrific. We could not ask for more- Cindy went completely above and beyond. The prices are very competitive and you will not be disappointed if you decide to hold your wedding here.

As the mother of the bride, whose daughter lives out of state, I thought I would be facing some challenges during the planning stages; however, the UCI University Club wedding coordinator Cindy Lee, who is armed with abundant knowledge and experience, guided us smoothly from day one until the ending of the wedding reception. Cindy was very helpful in giving us suggestions such as putting a "care" basket in the bathrooms for our guests (it included lotion, aspirins, wipes, bandages, disposable toothbrush, mints,Tide to go and etc.). Cindy suggested that we rent a golf cart to take wedding pictures in the park. The cocktail hour was held in the library room. The beautiful tall cascade of fruits and vegetables was the focal point. The bookcases were a nice backdrop for pictures. The location of the bar was conveniently located in the library. The banquet room was absolutely breath- taking especially at night: the room looked intimate and romantic. Our guests enjoyed the food and the ambience, but most importantly, everyone had a great time. Cindy did a fantastic job overseeing everything. I would highly recommend the UCI University club for its value, flexibility and its wonderful wedding coordinator-Cindy.
