Student Filming Requests

Current students may film on campus if they are filming specifically for a class project. Registered student organizations may also film on campus if the footage will be posted solely to their website or social media pages. Filming must not be disruptive, violate any other university rules, inconvenience members of the university community or create a safety hazard.

Locations: Students are responsible for obtaining permission from the appropriate department(s) in areas of campus where they wish to film. If questions or issues arise, students are encouraged to seek the assistance of the faculty member(s) who assigned the project.

Students wishing to film for other purposes must fill out the request form located under “Outside Groups.”
