202 Cesar Chavez #2440
Berkeley, CA 94720

We are located at the north side of Lower Sproul Plaza on the second floor of the Cesar E. Chavez Student Center.  Currently, students must 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 - however, this entrance is currently restricted to staff in Cesar Chavez.  GenEq's address "202 Chavez" refers to the suite in which GenEq is located.
