Bath Fan Auto-On/Off

At work the restroom fan turns on when you turn on the lights. Ok, I deem that as industrial building code.
At home, there are 2 switches on the double-box one for the 4-bulb vanity cluster and the other for the exhaust fan (is that residential code?).
With the guestroom bath in the basement, can I hook up the light switch to turn the fan on too?

Sure, no problem. I have an older house and during a re-model years ago I closed a bathroom window and had to add a ceiling vent which I tied in to the switch which controlled the vanity light. That was good insofar as it insured that when my children were showering the vent fan was turned on, but there are times when I would prefer to have the fan running and don't need the light. In these instances, it would be more convenient to have them switched separately.
