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.

January Art Exhibit, Linda Geniesse
Linda Geniesse received her BFA from Syracuse University in the early 1970’s and soon afterward made her way to the warmer climate of the Bay Area. After working for many years in the art department at the Berkeley Lab she retired and has again had more time to pursue fine art. She enjoys painting landscapes and portraits in oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor and encaustic. Painting en plein air is one of her favorite outdoor activities. Linda feels that college was just the beginning of her art education and loves taking classes, workshops and creating in the company of other artists. She points out that the Bay Area has a huge number of incredibly talented artists to learn from and be inspired by. In this exhibit she is displaying a range of her work in different mediums.Linda’s husband, David Attwood, is a member of the UC Berkeley. Over the years they have enjoyed numerous events, parties and dining at the historic and welcoming 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.
