News & Events

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.

The Faculty Club featured in a New York Times!
In case you missed it, the Faculty Club received very positive comments in a New York Times travel piece on Berkeley. We hope you enjoy as much as we did!

July Art Exhibit, Kathy Goss
Kathy Goss, daughter of professor emeritus Bob Glaeser, is an alum of U.C. Berkeley. She has always been attracted to the beauty of watercolors, and is inspired by the people and natural settings around her.Watercolor is both a versatile and challenging medium. Through the process of thumbnail sketches, composition, and color choices, Kathy carefully brings forth her subject from the blank white paper. By layering multiple washes of transparent color, she achieves a remarkable level of depth and detail. Kathy’s subjects range from portraits to wildlife to outdoor scenes, always revealing a personality or sense of place. Her paintings have been featured in exhibits around the Bay Area, including her childhood hometown of Berkeley and her current hometown, Oakland. You can view Kathy’s work at and contact her at

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.
