Jessica is a true superstar. She worked so hard to make our wedding day everything we could have wished for and more. Leading up to the day, Jessica was extremely responsive, had amazing suggestions (she suggested the chairs we ended up using which were one of my favorite things about the ballroom décor that day!) and helped us customize the day to make it just right for us. She coordinated with all of our other amazing vendors and even they were telling me how awesome she is! The rooftop terrace was gorgeous for our cocktail hour, and we held our reception in the grand ballroom which is a dream. Everything was beautiful and our guests couldn’t stop talking about how delicious the food was! Shout out to the chef and kitchen staff for doing an incredible job. We were a little bit worried when our itinerary for dinner service ended up pretty behind schedule, but Jessica and the servers worked hard to get the food out and she was SO accommodating. We ended up using the ballroom for an additional half hour which was probably the most fun part of the whole day! I can’t say enough about how happy we are that we chose to hold our reception here and how lucky we felt to have Jessica in charge of our day. I would recommend the UClub over and over!!Sent on 09/23/2018

Working With Jessica is a dream
As a vendor who has worked at this club for years, I can tell you that they make it so easy to help create a fabulous day for each bride. Their staff is helpful and friendly. The last thing a vendor needs are a grumpy group of people as you are setting up. Jessica offers to help in any way she can. I was lucky enough to be a guest at a wedding recently. They go all out!Sent on 07/22/2019

I recently had my wedding reception at the university club, and it was nothing short of perfection! I had a destination wedding and then flew into Pittsburgh to have a small reception with our closest family and friends. Jessica, the coordinator, went above and beyond to make our day absolutely perfect! She was so helpful, always available to answer my questions and extremely accommodating with changes in order to make the day unforgettable.Sent on 11/26/2018
All of the guests were amazed at how gorgeous the ballroom was and how fantastic the food was!
Awesome place for a wedding reception
The University Club offers their couples a one-of-a-kind of experience that combines impeccable service with sophisticated elegance. Jessica is an attentive coordinator who goes out of her way to provide concierge level service to all she works with.
The University Club at the University of Pittsburgh has a wonderful outdoor balcony overlooking The Cathedral of Learning and the Oakland area. The indoor staircase is perfect for excellent photos and the various reception rooms are beautiful for that special wedding, corporate function, party, etc. We have photographed a number of weddings at The University Club. The decor and the beautiful reception areas all make for a highly recommended venue. Kaila and staff are very courteous and professional and the beautiful venue made for a great experience. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
