In keeping with the private club atmosphere of The University Club of Milwaukee, we ask that members and their guests wear appropriate clothing in good taste. All members should know the Dress Code of the Club as established by the Board of Directors. It is the responsibility of the Member to inform his or her guests of the Dress Code and to enforce it when it is not followed. Appropriate country club attire is required throughout the Country Club, on the golf course, tennis courts, at the pool and on the grounds. The University Club dress code applies to all members, guests, and children six years of age and older.

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, a more relaxed dress code including walking shorts, sandals, and non-collared shirts are welcomed. Certain club events or special dining events may request that members and their guests dress differently than generally acceptable. In those cases, this information would be provided in the event notice.
