Clubhouse Membership

Since 1995, a unique alliance between the Virginia Club of New York and the Yale Club of New York City has given UVA alumni access to membership to the Yale Club of New York City.  Located at the corner of 44th Street and Vanderbilt Avenue, in the heart of Manhattan, the 22-story building is the largest college-affiliated clubhouse in the world.  It features 138 hotel rooms, three restaurants, a roof terrace, two bars, a library, and a fitness facility featuring a newly-renovated gym, three squash courts, pool, steam room, and sauna. The Yale Club serves over 11,000 members with the finest facilities, a friendly and attentive staff, special events to suit every taste, and a sense of camaraderie you simply won’t find anywhere else. Clubhouse membership allows UVA alumni to utilize the Yale Club facilities and attend events hosted by the Yale Club, in addition to enjoying the benefits offered through Virginia Club social membership. UVA alumni make up close to 1,600 members of the Yale Club. Please view our 2023 Clubhouse Member Information Packet for a full outline of the dues and benefits of clubhouse membership.
