Unsupervised Minors Policy

While it is recognized that a number of students at CSUDH are working parents and that currently there is no provision for drop-in day care or babysitting services on campus, especially in the evening hours; and it is further recognized that while it is the nature of the campus to be a safe environment for all who enter here, it is also recognized that the university cannot know the intentions of everyone who enters the campus to be honorable. It is therefore acknowledged that the presence of unsupervised minors presents a potential liability for the university. To best protect the university and children who may be brought to the campus, the following policy is enforced:

Unless a minor under the age of 18 is in the immediate presence of adult supervision, or can produce identification showing their association with the CSUDH campus or the California Academy of Math and Science (CAMS) upon request, that minor shall be immediately turned over to the protective custody of University Police until such time as their parent or guardian can be located. This policy applies to all areas of the CSUDH campus, including but not limited to outdoor sports fields, the gymnasium, classrooms, the library, Student Union, and other public areas. This also includes the unauthorized use of university equipment. CSUDH encourages and supports the presence of children under the age of 18 in the company of a supervising adult at any time, except as it interferes with the educational process.
