Guidelines for Campus Visitors!

CSUSB and the Office of Community Engagement are ready to invite community partners to visit our university. Campus visitors contribute to the quality of teaching, research, and service activities happening on campus. 

Please help us ensure our collective health by:

  1. Wearing a face covering during indoor activities.
  2. Completing a Daily Health Screen.

Campus visitors can also read CSUSB's Covid Prevention Plan to learn more about CSUSB’s health and safety requirements. Those community members found not strictly following the requirements will be asked to comply immediately; those who continue to not comply will be removed from university property and will not be granted permission to return until they are prepared to comply.
