Yes. The Faculty Club can be an ideal venue for catered events, but minimums do apply. There is a $1,000 food and non-alcoholic beverage minimum in order to use the Main Dining Room, and a $500 food and non-alcoholic beverage minimum to use the Faculty Club Lounge or President’s Dining Room Monday through Friday after 3 p.m. and weekends. Please note that an additional room set up fee will be required for events in the Faculty Club. Events that use the existing set up in the lounge and dining room will not incur a set up fee.
