Dress Guidelines


Recommended attire for evening dining and Club and Private Events: A coat and tie are always appropriate, but at all times men are asked to wear a collared shirt with dress slacks. Women are asked to wear a dress, dressy skirt or pants with a blouse/shirt, or a suit. Sandals and flip-flops are not allowed. Shoes should be clean and appropriate for the occasion.

Recommended attire for breakfast, lunch, summer outdoor dining, and use of the Hayman Lounge: Clean, campus-appropriate casual dress in good condition that is not excessively revealing. Tennis attire is only appropriate in the Hayman Lounge.

At times, Athenaeum management may adopt event-specific dress guidelines that are more or less stringent than those above. Hosts of private functions may impose more stringent dress guidelines. Please inquire if you are unsure.

Throughout The Athenaeum, shoes and shirt are required.
