Bringing Guests

Sorry! Freshman Orientation is only for admitted first-time Freshman at Cal State East Bay. We pride ourselves in having a safe and secure campus and therefore, no guests are allowed during Orientation. Parents and family members should register for Family Orientation.


Cal State East Bay prohibits the possession, use, or trafficking of drugs or alcohol on campus; this includes your stay at Pioneer Heights. The University Police Department will handle all violations of this rule. Consequences could include, but are not limited to: having your parents called to pick you up, de-enrolled from the University, or arrested. Come to Orientation with a positive outlook and ready to have fun and we’ll show you how to have a good time without breaking the rules.

What to Bring

We suggest you bring the following to Orientation:

  • A photo ID
  • All correspondence you have received from any CSUEB Office (e.g. Admissions, Financial Aid, Testing, etc.)
