Faculty Club is a series of three interconnected buildings located at 715-721 East Second Street. As their name implies, they were once used for employee housing, but are now used to house students. It is considered to be an off-campus house and is available to upperclassmen at Room Draw.
Faculty Club has 24/7 "Quiet Hours." For that reason, it is traditionally inhabited by particularly studious students.
HistoryD. Blake Stewart in the 1920s by merging three houses together. One was already on site, a second was shifted several feet into position, and the third was moved from down the street.
For many years, Faculty Club was used to house bachelor members of the faculty. A kitchen and dining room offered meals for residents and their guests.

- Faculty Club once included a dining room operated by the Carleton Food Service for its bachelor faculty residents. However, according to a story related by Owen Jenkins, the faculty couldn't stand each other, and so refused to come to a communal dinner, leading to the eventual closure of the dining room.
- Owen Jenkins also reported that "no faculty member had ever committed adultery in Faculty Club." It is unclear how he knew this fact.
- Faculty Club has a reputation for being very confusing to walk around in. This was alluded to in the DVD Fest 2005 film "The Story of the Faculty Club Ghost," in which a student becomes lost and so becomes a part of the walls.
