The club offers several opportunities for its membership to enjoy privileges at some of the most exclusive clubs and resorts worldwide.
The Association of College and University Clubs is included in
membership dues and the International Club Network (ICN) as a minimal
add-on to the monthly dues. The Club also offers opportunities with
several local city and country clubs. This is a non-profit organization of campus-based clubs located throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Established in 1978, the Association creates global awareness of the services provided by university clubs in their role as campus hosts. As hospitality providers, university clubs promote collegiality, social interaction and enhanced communication among members of academic and professional communities. Over 90 clubs worldwide participate in the Association's reciprocity program, facilitating academic interaction by opening their doors to club members visiting from other campuses.
Member Clubs of the Association recognize and honor a reciprocal agreement which allows individual members of a Club to visit any of the other Clubs within the Association. The reciprocal agreement encourages fellowship among the various universities and enhances the lines of communication between the associated Clubs and their individual members.
Each Club in the Association is a unique reflection of the university community it serves. The facilities and services available, as well as hours of operation, are quite different in each Club. To insure an enjoyable visit to another Club, please check with the individual club regarding dining hours or services available to visiting members with reciprocal privileges.
