For the Media: Filming on Campus

Xavier University is private property. Advertising and commercial filming projects are prohibited except with written permission from the Office of University Communications. Call Debora Del Valle at 513-745-3925 for further information.

News filming is generally permitted in outdoor, public areas of campus as long as the story pertains to or involves the University or a member of our community. Permission to film in any exterior or interior spaces on University property should be approved by and coordinated with the Office of Public Relations. This includes administrative buildings, residence halls and dining areas, classrooms and laboratories. We must get permission from individual faculty for classrooms and laboratories and by administrators through the Office of Public Relations for dorms or other spaces.

This policy applies to any type of photography -- stills, video and film -- and to any reporters with cameras. The Office of Public Relations is available to assist news media with shooting on campus if needed, including setting up locations and gaining access to restricted areas when permission has been granted. We can also offer advice on parking. Please call (513) 745-3925 for assistance.
