202 César E. Chávez Student Center MC2440
Berkeley, CA 94720-2440

We are located at the  side of Lower Sproul Plaza on the second floor of the César E. Chávez Student Center.  Currently, visitors enter the Chavez building at the main entrance on the first floor from Lower Sproul and enter GenEq through the glass double-doors at the head of the stairs that lead up from the atrium of the Student Learning Center.  Typically, visitors can also enter from Upper Sproul Plaza by following the south (left) side of the building from the Golden Bear Cafe (GBC) until they reach the entrance to GenEq, which is next to the patio with a set of wooden picnic tables that overlooks Lower Sproul Plaza.  GenEq's address "202 Chávez" refers to the suite in which GenEq is located.
