Membership Benefits

Members love the Harvard Club of New York.

And for many good reasons…

The Harvard Club of New York City is a community that welcomes and promotes fellowship among its members and reflects the spirit of Harvard University. Whether for business, dining, relaxing, continuing education or networking, the Club is here for you and provides a robust list of amenities, programs, and events to engage in with other members, and friends and family, and colleagues.

The Place to Network

Sure, everyone networks, but not everyone can network with the largest group of Harvard grads in the world. (Well, outside Cambridge.) HCNY is the perfect place to meet great alums you don’t know… yet. All in one of the most beautiful settings in New York. Why not take advantage of this exclusive and most valuable resource?

Reconnect with Old Friends

Facebook is fine, but nothing can take the place of meeting an old buddy over a cup of hot coffee in a thoroughly Harvard setting.

Very Special Interest Groups
