New Columbia University Club Affiliation

Over the past year, the CUCNY Board of Governors has explored potential scenarios to improve the member experience.  After an in-depth exploration of numerous options, the Board is excited to announce that we have reached an affiliation agreement with The Penn Club of New York.  Our members will be eligible to join this vibrant social and cultural community beginning Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

The Penn Club of New York is housed in a landmark clubhouse located at 30 West 44th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, convenient to Grand Central and all that mid-town Manhattan has to offer.

CUCNY members will have the opportunity to become affiliate members of The Penn Club and have access to its full range of exceptional amenities and services.  An abbreviated list of these amenities and services includes:  fine and casual dining, guest rooms, meeting rooms, domestic and international reciprocal clubs, clubhouse business and social areas, private event and banquet facilities, and fitness center.
