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 open houses scheduled for April of 2020 have been cancelled because the clubs closed effective March 13 for the rest of the spring semester in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The next open houses are expected to take place in the fall of 2020. The exact dates will be posted when determined.

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:
