Open University

We’re open and ready to support you!

As we continue to monitor and meet established safety guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, our offices are still open and operating in a virtual and now in-person format. Here is how you can reach us virtually: by phone at (909) 537-5975 or via e-mail at, we will respond as quickly as possible. For in-person assistance, we are located in CGI 301B, which is on the third floor at the second window furthest from the elevators. Wearing a mask is required at all times while on campus. Please keep a close watch for new announcements, safety guidelines, and safety requirements. Many of them, as well as several resources, can be found on CSUSB’s dedicated COVID-19/Coronavirus Information web page.

Thank you, and stay safe.
