Building Permits

Definition: The California State University is responsible for the enforcement of building codes on university property as approved by the California Building Commission (CBC). Each campus is under the direct administrative and operational control of a Building Official in the system wide office. A Deputy Building Official has been identified on each CSU Campus. At California State University San Marcos, the Deputy Building Official responsibilities are assigned to the Associate Vice President, Facilities Development & Management. Acting on behalf of the Trustees, and under the authority of the Chancellor and the President, the Deputy Building Official develops and enforces the campus' building permit process. No building or structure shall be erected, constructed, enlarged, repaired, moved, improved, removed, converted, or demolished without a building permit, unless determined to be exempt by the Deputy Building Official.
