Anyone know what this is? Started appearing all over my friend's apartment after a camping trip. Toilet paper for scale.

Looks almost like a Saw Tooth Grain beetle, or some type of Grain beetle. If your friend has any oats, flour or any other "meal" type products I'd give them a search. Might have a infestation somewhere and it's always good to get them when it's just starting.
