Prospect House is a private club for all faculty and staff of Princeton University and their guests. Membership to Prospect House is automatic on your first day of work and includes all faculty, administration and all employees of Princeton University. Your Princeton University employee identification card entitles you to membership.
Founded on August 20, 1969, the Prospect Association was created to foster social and intellectual interchange among members of Princeton Universitys academic and support staffs. The Association is governed by a managing board elected from its membership.
In addition to being a member of Prospect House you are automatically a member of the ACUC.
What is the ACUC?
The Association of College and University Clubs (ACUC) is an organization of more than 100 campus-based clubs located in North America, Australia and the United Kingdom.
The Association was founded in 1978 and is dedicated to providing its member institutions with a vehicle for improving communications between academics and all others involved in the process of higher education.
Member Clubs of the Association recognize and honor a reciprocal agreement, which allows individual members of a faculty 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.
Any member in good standing of an ACUC Faculty Club may visit other faculty clubs that belong to the Association. Each club may issue the ACUC Reciprocal Membership Card to members in good standing, along with a brochure listing the participating Clubs.
Have your individual club's membership number ready when you call to make reservations.
Each faculty 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 it is important to telephone ahead whenever possible to find out when the Club is open and what services are offered to a visiting member. Often the manager of a Club can assist members in arranging a visit to another Club by calling in advance. Individual Clubs may have restrictions in the use of their facilities, or in the frequency of visits, which should be respected. Please check with the Club Manager regarding reciprocal privileges at another club.
