Once upon a time, in the heart of Utrecht University and in the heart of Utrecht city centre, there was a living room for all alumni and staff of Utrecht University and their guests. For 25 years, we have been an inspiring meeting place with sparkling gastronomy, where great social activities and meaningful debates are organised and where you can enjoy the sun in the hidden garden. This year, we celebrate 25 years of Faculty Club together, with the slogan "In the heart". Be welcome and celebrate with us!

  • For 25 years the dazzling heart of the university community

    "After two years of preparation, the contours of the club were clear: it was to be a society with paying members consisting of scientists, support staff and alumni and with a clubhouse. We characterised the atmosphere as a living room of 'distinguished simplicity'."

    "Why am I a fan of the Faculty Club? Obviously because it is the most fun and welcoming club at Utrecht University! It's a nice place to meet up, have a bite to eat with my friends or meet colleagues. And I always enjoy catching up with bartender Pieter."

    "We prefer to work with steel and wood. They age well, are less expensive and fit in nicely with the old atmosphere of the Faculty Club. You can turn the place into something antique or you can turn it into something new, but with respect for the old. We chose the latter."

    "In the United States, the faculty club is the centre of social life. The Utrecht Faculty Club is great fun, but not yet known to everyone. This is different in the US: there, faculty clubs have a strong connection with their staff and alumni."
