Be part of the UWCV legacy

With a rich history of advocacy, events and representation, the University Women’s Club of Vancouver now boasts more than 450+ members from more than 100 universities.

Our purpose is to stimulate intellectual activity, to promote an interest in public affairs and to afford an opportunity for the expression of an united opinion on women’s issues. We avidly promote an interest in educational issues, the maintenance of high standards of public education and awarding multiple bursaries and scholarships annually. Fellowship and co-operation among women is of utmost importance at the University Women’s Club of Vancouver, and members together we are committed to and responsible for the preservation of Hycroft, a City of Vancouver designated heritage building.

Hycroft, in the heart of Shaughnessy, is our members’ home away from home. We preserve our heritage house with its original interior, terrace, and beautiful walled garden - a welcoming place to enjoy, to meet, and to entertain family and friends.
