A Campus Haven
In a quiet, wooded glade on the Berkeley campus – close to everything but removed from the crowds and chatter – is a treasure most people know little about.
Since 1902 the Faculty Club has been a secluded retreat, luncheon club, meeting place, tavern hotel, and party facility for faculty, administrative personnel, staff, alumni, and community members closely associated with Cal. Women have enjoyed full membership benefits for decades.
The Club building is an architectural gem of Craftsman design, by Berkeley architect Bernard Maybeck. It’s listed internationally, as one of the finest examples of the style. The carved beams, the fireplaces, the stained glass windows – all reflect Maybeck’s awareness of a special northern California aesthetic that still arouses a warm response in visitors and members alike.
