Residents are responsible for their guest's behavior and will be held judicially responsible for any policy violations, behavioral issues, or community concerns.
CSUB Housing Guest Policy:
This visitation policy is designed with the safety and consideration of our community members and property in mind. In addition, these policies are dictated by California law in Title V of the California Code of Regulations. Residents are permitted to host guests as long as the rights and privacy of the other persons living in the room and residential halls are taken into consideration. The definition of a guest is any person who does not hold a Housing license agreement for a bed space within on-campus housing for that particular unit. An overnight guest is defined as any person, including a visitor but other than a licensee, who is permitted by a licensee, the President of the university or her designee to make use of any housing facility after 1:00am. Consequences to violating this policy included a judicial hearing and judicial fine of up to $30 per night of violations. The following is a list of policy guidelines for hosting guests:
a. Roommates must give their approval before a guest may be hosted in the unit. In cases where roommates cannot agree, the right of a person to occupy her/his room/apartment without the presence of a guest must take precedence over the right of a roommate to host guests.
b. No resident is authorized to extend residency to their guests or other students and/or authorize visitation beyond five nights per 30-day period.
c. Residents are responsible for the guest’s conduct at all times and any damages incurred by that guest. All guests must comply with all University and Student Housing policies. Guests may be asked by University staff to provide identification or leave the premises at any time. The guest must comply.
d. A guest must be accompanied by their host at all times. Guests are not permitted to be unescorted and may not be left unattended in the host’s room or within the community.
e. Advertising for open parties or gatherings is not permitted under any circumstance.
