As a group admin, I want to prevent any HipChat user from making a room accessible to guests. Can this be done?

If you're using HipChat Server, it is possible to control this. As an admin, you can navigate to Group Admin > Preferences  > Guest Access > Choose "Disable". When disabled, rooms cannot have guest access enabled. Any existing rooms with guest access enabled will have it disabled.

Good to know, what about if I'm not using HipChat Server?

If you're on HipChat Cloud, this feature is not available for admins at this time. You may raise a suggestion to implement similar feature on HipChat Cloud here
