Gambling Policy

On State property, the California Penal Code forbids the dealing, playing, conducting, betting on, and providing facilities for games involving cards, dice, and other devices for money, checks, credit, or other representation of value. Similarly, the Code forbids for-profit lotteries, raffles, drawings, and gift enterprises which are schemes to dispose of or distribute property by chance among persons who have paid valuable consideration. It is a misdemeanor not only to sell lottery tickets but also to print, advertise, publish, manage, draw, or provide offices for lotteries.

Gambling of any kind is prohibited on the campus of CSUDH. The sale of California and other lottery tickets is strictly prohibited. Hosting a Casino Night on campus is permissible under guidelines outlined in the Casino Night Policy. Off campus groups and organizations contracting with the university for use of facilities are also subject to these regulations.
