UC Berkeley - Tolman Hall Demolition 2019

Tolman Hall was vacated in 2018. Programs from the School of Education and Department of Psychology relocated to the newly constructed Berkeley Way West, located a few blocks to the west. The building was subsequently demolished due to its seismic performance rating and obsolete building systems which would make a renovation financially unfeasible. The site was graded with stormwater management features incorporated, and damaged sidewalks were repaired and replaced.

This site will become the Gateway, a future university building project that is anticipated to open in academic year 2024/25.
