The Virginia Club is a non-profit organization that thrives on hundreds of volunteer hours and contributions. As we continue to promote the University’s presence in New York, your membership in the Virginia Club of New York helps us to grow as a club! 

We offer two types of membership:

Social Membership

Grants alums various social benefits at our events, such as discounts for all ticketed events, access to members-only events, and freebies at events. The dues range from $30-60/year. Social Membership is valid twelve months beginning the day one registers and will auto-renew at the end of the twelve-month period. Social membership is open to alumni, family, parents, and friends.

Clubhouse Membership

Grants alums full access to the Yale Club of New York City, as well as the benefits of a social membership. The dues are charged on a monthly basis and are calculated based on two metrics: year of graduation and proximity of applicants’ residence to the Yale Club.
