Beginning Thursday, UC Berkeley students living in the residence halls can walk to Underhill Parking Garage for their mandatory twice a week COVID-19 surveillance testing.

The site, which sits in between Unit 1 and Unit 2, was previously available for drive-through testing. However, according to an email sent by student affairs Wednesday, it will now be open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. for walk-through testing.

Students who want to test at Underhill must book an appointment through the eTang portal and can enter the testing site through the garage entrance on Channing Way. Though students can still book appointments at the campus Recreational Sports Facility, Memorial Stadium or the Underhill drive-through site, campus hopes that the new site will provide a “convenient option” for those living in the residence halls.
