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 in the 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!

September Art Exhibit, Steve Finacom
ARTIST'S STATEMENT: Each year I’ve enjoyed putting together a display of collected art depicting the Berkeley campus, a subject of endless fascination to generations of both professional and amateur artists. This year’s display includes paintings, watercolors, prints and photographs going back to the 19th century that focus on the landscape setting of the campus.This fall it is 150 years since the University of California held its first classes in Oakland; four years later, in 1873, the University moved into newly built facilities on the Berkeley site and has been here ever since. On Tuesday, September 10, I’ll give an illustrated talk next door at the Women’s Faculty Club from 4-5 PM, expanding on this history of art depicting the campus. The talk is free but seats are limited; you can register through the Women’s Faculty Club.

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.
