SF State Campus Ordinances
Purpose and Intent
San Francisco State University has implemented the following campus ordinances to protect the health, safety and general welfare of the SF State community and visitors to the campus.
California Government Code Sections 7596-7598 permit local governments and college campuses, including those of the California State University, to pass more restrictive smoking ordinances, regulations and policies than those listed in the California Government Code itself in order to address issues that have a negative impact on the campus communities.
Following are the SFSU Campus Ordinances which are enforced by the University Police Department and Department of Parking and Transportation. These ordinances are campus-specific and are decriminalized sections, much like a parking ticket. They are not adjudicated in a court of law.
