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!

June Art Exhibit,  Allan Jensen Exhibits Norman Jensen’s photography 
Allan Jensen has been a member of the Faculty Club since the late 1970’s as well as a member of the Faculty Club Monks Chorus since 1987. This exhibit however, focuses not on Allan’s avocation as a photographer but on his late brother Norman’s photos of rare and native plants.Norm Jensen’s was a well known botanist/photographer and has over 300 of his images here at Cal’s own “Cal Photo” data bases. These photographic images are available to any nonprofit organization (including governmental agencies such as National, State and local parks, forests and preserves) for use in educational and research purposes.Club members will be pleased with this exhibit from the extended Cal family. Please enjoy this month’s exhibit.

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.
