The Faculty Club is the site of numerous events, both private and public, which are too many to publish.  For example, the UC Berkeley Career Center reports that 90% of campus recruiting events are held at our facility.

Monthly Art Exhibit  -  
Russ Ellis
Russ Ellis, Emeritus Professor of Architecture and Vice Chancellor, Emeritus, UC Berkeley, was born in Los Angeles in 1935. He spent the war years (1941- 46) whittling and designing mud balls on a farm in Fontana, California, in the foothills of Mt. Baldy, called “Rockville” by the locals. It was an alluvial fan of rounded boulders left by an ancient glacier. We lived at the edge of the wilderness. Wild animals wandered onto the homestead. My lullaby at bedtime was the wail of hundreds of coyotes. The San Bernardino and San Gorgonio mountains remain a fundamental feature of my sense of things.

At UCLA, in the 50’s, the artist now known as Judith Greenleaf introduced me to abstract painting. I fell in love with Kandinsky, for a time. I’m currently in a very permissive painting class conduced by Katie Hawkinson.

Holiday Hours & Closures
The Faculty Club's office and dining calendars generally follow the UC Berkeley Academic Calendar, whereby we close on the same national and academic/administrative holidays. The Faculty Club does, however, remain open and offer full service during most of Spring Break and through the summer. The Faculty Club Hotel remains open throughout the year.
