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 tentatively will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on successive Sundays in the fall¬† semester of 2023, grouped as follows:

November 12th: Cannon Club, Cap & Gown Club, Colonial Club, Ivy Club, Terrace Club, Tower Club

November 19th: Charter Club, Cloister Inn, Cottage Club, Quadrangle 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.
