The College Women's Club was a women's club founded in 1920 based in Berkeley, California. It organized Berkeley's first cooperative day nursery and established scholarships.[2]

The building[edit]

The College Women's Club building was built by Walter T. Steilberg in 1928[3] in the American Craftsman style.[4]

The College Women's Club sold the building and it was turned into a rooming house and a sorority. The building was restored in the early 1990s and then became the Berkeley Hotel.[4]

The building, now the Berkeley Hotel, was designated a "City of Berkeley Landmark" in 1979[2] and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[3]
