The University Club was an amazing venue for our wedding! The staff there is extremely professional, honest, and accommodating. The event coordinator, Katie, was incredible. We completely trusted her to make our day run smoothly and she did just that and more! She communicated with our DJ on the timeline and made sure we were enjoying our night. Not only is Katie a huge highlight to the venue, but the food is delicious. Everyone said our food was the best food they've had at a wedding! The cake was great too. Another plus to having your wedding at the University Club is that you don't need to go to any outside vendors for things- the University Club has everything you need: food, cake, linens, dance floor, everything. Not to mention, the view from the tenth floor is beautiful. You have a great view of the whole city wherever you are in the club. Also, we loved that the University Club could hold a lot of guests and not feel crowded because people aren't just stuck in one room. Our guests loved that parking was validated and they could easily walk to their hotel after the reception since the UC is in the heart of downtown. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue!Sent on 09/03/2018

This beautiful venue is a hidden Gem! I never even knew it was there until our first wedding there. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! and it overlooks the beautiful downtown view. The staff is so great to work with!!!!!
University Club of Grand Rapids is such a great venue! Katie and her team do everything they can to make sure a bride and groom get the day they want. And the food is always just wonderful! As a planner, they are a wonderful venue to work with to create a seamless celebration!
I have had the pleasure of working with the University Club twice as an event coordinator. They are so very friendly, organized, and eager to please. The facility is always spotless and they make sure to set it up exactly as discussed. On the big day they are always well staffed and events go off without a hitch. They are willing to work with a couple on special requests such as incorporating local food and beverages or accommodation of unique themes. The views of the vibrant city are bountiful from this perch atop the skyline. UC is a great place to hold your wedding reception or any lovely party for that matter!
