    BERKELEY, CA - FEBRUARY 24: Students walk near Sather Gate on the University of California at Berkeley campus February 24, 2005 in Berkeley, California. The City of Berkeley is suing U.C. Berkeley citing that university administrators did not adequately evaluate the consequences to the city with its 15-year growth plan and hopes to block construction of any new projects.

    One of the most popular student hubs on the UC Berkeley campus shuttered Tuesday after bed bugs were discovered on a chair, the university's student newspaper reported. 

    Campus spokesperson Adam Ratliff told the paper that the tiny insects "likely originated from a visitor," and said that several buildings closed for inspection would reopen on Sunday, ahead of Fall Semester starting. 

    "At this time, measures are being taken to detect if bedbugs are present elsewhere and, as a prescaution, potentially impacted areas of the Student Union have been closed to the public."
