Why did the Princeton Club close?

  • In keeping with the mandates by city and state authorities, the Club closed to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. We sincerely hope that you and those close to you stay safe and well.The decision to close the Club on a temporary basis is a proactive measure to help enforce social distancing to contain the spread of the virus.

Can members enter the Clubhouse?

  • No. All areas, including the lounge, gym, restaurants, event venues, guest rooms and business center are closed.

Is the staff being laid off?

  • Yes. The Club’s staff is being laid off during this temporary closure. A small group of essential staff are working remotely to answer phones and work with members to adjust their travel and event plans.

How long will the Club be closed?

  • We aren’t certain. The situation continues to evolve. We are hoping to return to normal operations as soon as we are able. Please check our website or emails for updated information about re-opening.

I would like to help by paying my dues in advance. How do I figure out how much my 25% pull forward dues contribution will be?

  • The Club provides the following examples based on how you currently pay your dues: 
    • Monthly Installments: If you pay $100 per month in dues this year, your next year’s dues will be $105.00 per month* factoring in a standard 5% dues increase.  A 25% payment of your annual dues equals 3 months of dues or $315.00.
    • One Annual Payment: If you paid $1200.00 in dues annually this year, your next year’s annual dues will be $1260.00 factoring in a standard 5% dues increase.  A 25% payment of your annual dues equals $315.00
*Does not account for higher dues categories for members 1-14 years from graduation who roll to a higher dues bracket on July 1, 2020.

If I elect to pay 100% of my annual dues for next year now, when will my 10% house credit become available?

  • July 1, 2020.  Added incentive: If you opt to pay 100% of your dues now, and you are 1-14 years from your graduation year, we will forgive this years roll increase.
     

Will I receive a refund of my dues or assessment now that the Club is closed?

  • No. Membership is a 12-month commitment. We depend on membership dues to sustain the Club. Our clubhouse is closed temporarily. We hope to be back up and operating as soon as possible.
  • We are prorating next quarters’ gym and locker fees based on a reopening date. Quarterly minimum balances will be moved to next quarter.

Do I still need to pay the balance of this year's dues and assessment?

  • Yes.  We are stretching our cash reserves to their limits so in addition to covering critical funding for our temporarily laid off employees, we still need to defray all the obligations necessary to maintain the fabric and viability of our Clubhouse.
  • We are prorating next quarters’ gym and locker fees based on our reopening date. Quarterly minimum balances will be moved to next quarter.

I have a club mailbox. If I am not allowed to enter the Clubhouse, how do I pick up my mail?

What should I do with my existing reservations for events or overnight stays?

  • All club sponsored events have been cancelled for March and April.  We hope to reschedule these events at a later date. In the coming weeks, staff will be contacting members who have reserved overnight accommodations as arrival dates approach.  No cancellation fees will be charged for existing reservations.
