With a history rich in academic prestige and ceremony, University House guests and visitors are treated to a unique, club-like experience that was once the exclusive privilege of distinguished academics and celebrated dignitaries. Our heritage-listed architecture and décor, period accommodation, stylish venues, and academic presence echo University House's Oxbridge origins; our dining and meeting spaces, and the buzz of world-leading research and learning, speak to life of the contemporary university and city.

Set within a leafy enclave, University House offers guests a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, while only being a short stroll from all its attractions. Once the exclusive home to students and academics, the hotel provides guests with a warm, intimate atmosphere and the utmost in personal attention. The classic 1950s building has been carefully preserved with rooms offering the perfect blend of heritage decor and modern facilities.
