Faculty Center Building Update


We have been actively working on an ambitious project to improve the Faculty Center building thanks to considerable planning by Faculty Center leadership, the Design Committee of the Board of Governors, and the Board of Governors as a whole. We look forward to reopening the Center in early 2021 or when the campus returns to normal operations.

UCLA Administration has pledged $10 million for a seismic and infrastructure project for our beloved mid-century modern structure. The renderings were prepared by MRY Architects and Planners. This firm is working with Capital Programs and the Faculty Center on the seismic and infrastructure upgrade that is being funded by UCLA Administration. The plan includes images from architects specialized in mid-century modern design, followed by floorplans and recommended surfaces and colors. 

In addition, improvements to the interior of the building will be carried out with funds from our donors, including a $1 million contribution from Sherie and Don Morrison. Please see below for renderings and images of these projects.

California Room

The California Room will be renovated and transformed through the gracious donation Sherie and Don Morrison after which the room will be renamed for them. This room is the centerpiece for many events and conferences and will be a stellar example of mid-century design. New carpet will be installed, the ceiling will be brightened with new paint, and the walls stripped of their molding to return it to its classic mid-century style.
