The UC Berkeley student group move out of Eshleman Hall will continue Thursday now that the campus fire marshal has approved the storage spaces in Hearst Gym and the Hearst Gym Annex.
According to ASUC Student Spaces Deputy Briana Mullen, 200 student groups will be able to move into the storage spaces beginning Thursday and lasting until next Tuesday.
The move was originally postponed from its original dates of Aug. 9 to Aug. 10 due to building code issues that involved checking the fire sprinkler system in Hearst Gym. According to Mullen, the move was delayed a week.
“We are on a tight schedule right now, especially for our orientation that will happen on Monday,” Mullen said.
ASUC Executive Vice President Justin Sayarath said the student groups will be moving based on their floor location in Eshleman. According to Mullen, the ASUC offices will be moved Thursday, and the Center for Student Leadership and other offices on Eshleman’s fourth floor will move to the gym on Friday.
The rest of the groups will be moved on Saturday, except for those moving into Room 18. Groups to be located in Room 18 will move into their spaces on Tuesday, when construction on the final storage room is scheduled to be completed.
“We were delayed a couple of days, but the move is still happening,” Sayarath said. “It was later than planned, but we’re preparing the locks and clocks in the brand new spaces and checking the inventory.”
