Venue Change for April Meetings

Please note that our regular meeting venue is not available for use for the time being as it is awaiting repairs to the floor after flooding.

For at least the next 4 weeks we will instead be meeting at the University Club Business Lounge at UWA, which is to the right of the foyer of the main entry, just before you enter the University Club Café.

We must be out of the room by 7pm. Please ensure that you arrive by 6pm so that we can start promptly.

You are welcome to arrive early and enjoy dinner / snacks at the café, and purchase drinks to bring into the meeting room. Please note that in order to be served, visitors must be accompanied by a current University Club member: Di Collins.

Getting to the University Club

Please park in Car Park 3 off Hackett Drive (Entrance 1) – you may use the red and yellow permit parking bays as well as the visitor bays. Parking on campus at UWA is free after 5pm.

There are steps up to the main entrance (which faces Hackett Drive). For those with mobility issues, there is a lift in the basement carpark. Please note that parking in the basement is only available to University Club members, however you may walk in there to use the lift.
