The Faculty Club

Welcome to the Faculty Club, Columbia University Irving Medical Center's central dining venue. We're located on the fourth floor of the College of Physicians and Surgeons building at 630 W. 168th St. Each weekday, you can stop in for a refreshing, healthy lunch buffet in our expansive, light-filled space.

You can also reserve our space for private events. We're versatile enough to hold conferences, lectures, plated dinners, receptions, holiday parties, and more.

    • Two of the rooms hold 12 guests.
    • The larger room holds 25-30 guests.
  • Restrooms for men and women are located just outside the entrance to the Faculty Club.
