Open Houses at Princeton University’s Eating Clubs

Princeton Prospect Foundation provides for periodic public access to Princeton University’s iconic eating clubs where generations of students have taken meals and socialized in historic and architecturally significant clubhouses that date as far back as 1895.  There is no fee to visit the clubs during open houses, nor are reservations required.

The next open houses will take place from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on the following two Sundays in October, 2019:

Oct. 6th:  Cannon Club, Colonial Club, Cottage Club, Quadrangle Club, Terrace Club, Tower Club

Oct. 20th:  Cap and Gown Club, Charter Club, Cloister Inn, Ivy Club, Tiger Inn

The fascinating origins and evolution of the clubs, along with many archival images and spectacular photos, can be found in The Princeton Eating Clubs, written by award-winning author Clifford W. Zink in 2017. This beautiful book is available at Labyrinth Books and the Princeton University Store, and on Amazon:
