Faculty Dining Club

The Faculty Club, located in the Graham Center, is an excellent venue for dining gatherings, receptions, meetings and special events. The ambiance is relaxed, yet elegant and conducive to hosting formal and semi-formal private engagements. The Faculty Club also offers two small private dining rooms for 10-12 guests. The Gold and the Blue dining rooms are ideally suited for lunch meetings or private luncheons.

A varied lunch menu is served buffet style, featuring a salad bar of seasonal fruits and vegetables, homemade soups each day, a variety of delicious entrees and sides, desserts, iced tea and coffee. Wine and beer are offered at a nominal cost. During the year, the Club offers its members special luncheons, live piano musical selections and evening events in collaboration with the Music, Theatre and other academic departments.

Panther Dining Services, managed by Aramark (FIU's food service provider), offers Faculty Club members a meal plan options at great savings. We invite you to visit the Faculty Club to experience the excellence in service and food that this charming location has to offer.
