Filming or Taking Photos On Campus

Personal photos and video may be taken by students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni and other campus visitors for personal, non-commercial purposes. On-campus photography and videography must be consistent with UofM policy and not interfere with the ongoing operations of the University.

The University accommodates reasonable requests for journalistic, news-related, non-commercial shooting, but reserves the right to deny permission when the request runs contrary to University policies, especially those that ensure student privacy.

The University restricts the use of its land or buildings for commercial filming. Express permission is required and requests will be considered on a limited, case-by-case basis submitted at least 30 days prior to shooting and in coordination with a sponsoring division, college or other unit.

Approval to film or photograph on University of Memphis property is required for internal and external parties. Please complete this form and email it to logo@memphis.edu and you will be contacted within two business days.

Once your request has been approved, complete the Location Use Agreement Form >
