The Royal Northern & University Club: Membership means so much 

Despite a history stretching back over 150 years, The Royal Northern & University Club is a very forward looking organisation, with superb facilities and a familiar camaraderie. Members are a lively, entertaining group of people from all walks of life. There are Members in their twenties and women have been admitted to membership since 2017. Many of today’s Members are actively involved in local, national and international affairs. 

It’s a place where you will instantly feel like you belong, with a true sense
of companionship that’s increasingly valuable in an online world. There are over fifteen club groups with interests ranging from cherished cars to film and theatre and gardening to golf and a full-sized snooker table available to Members.

The club is known for the excellence of its food, from hearty breakfasts to traditional dinners, fine dining and inventive vegetarian options. There are conference and meeting facilities available to hire and ten bedrooms offering superb accommodation. The club also has reciprocal arrangements with over 130 other clubs, from Helsinki to New Zealand, not to mention many of the fabulous London clubs, meaning you feel at home wherever you are in the world. 

Membership is by nomination and open to those over 21. The Club has two main categories of Membership: Ordinary and Country. Eligibility for Country Membership which has a lower subscription rate, is available for Members when their residential and business address are outwith a 50 mile radius of Aberdeen. Junior Membership for those between the ages of 21 and 30, and Associate Membership are also available.
