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 recently received very positive comments in a New York Times travel piece on Berkeley. We hope you enjoy as much as we did!

Meet Joseph Hébert, new Prior of the Faculty Club Monks
San Francisco Bay Area cellist, choral director, and educator, is the new Prior of the Faculty Club Monks. Hébert served more than 15 years on the faculty of the UCB Young Musicians Program. He is Assistant Principal Cello with the Oakland Symphony, is on the faculty of CSU East Bay, has toured extensively with his choirs throughout Europe, and performed on many Grammy award winning recordings. “Prior Joe” directed rehearsals of the Monks this Fall, and will direct them and their associated brass ensemble at the Christmas programs in the Great Hall.

Upcoming Closure Dates

Monthly Art Exhibit , December : Richard White
It’s become a tradition for the December images outside the Great Hall to illustrate activities of the Faculty Club Monks. This year’s display features three photos of our new Prior, Joseph Hébert, who has a distinguished record as an orchestral musician (cello) and as a teacher and choral conductor.All but one of the pictures were taken by Monk Dick White, an Emeritus Professor from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences who started photographing the Monks some years ago to suggest how much fun we have rehearsing from late October and performing through the December parties. Since there seems to be a limit to the number of unique photos one can take of Monks, you may recognize here pictures from previous Christmases, as well as some you may not have seen before.

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.
