The Student Recreation Center is a private space, therefore, photography and videography is strictly regulated past the turnstiles and requires advance notice and explicit permission. Requests to film or photograph within the Student Recreation Center must be sent to Brit Heiring, Communications & Marketing Manager at email@example.com at least 2 business days in advance. Photography requests for the Aquatic Center are granted on an extremely limited basis and, due to this limitation, requests must be made 10 business days in advance.
Once approved by the Communications Manager, all persons obtaining photos, videos, or other forms of media within the Student Recreation Center will be given a media pass. This pass must be worn and plainly displayed during the entirety of the photo/video shoot. Persons without an approved media pass will be asked to leave the building and must contact the Communications Manager for permission to reenter for media purposes. Passes are not granted day-of even in cases where the patron is up against a media or class deadline. Advance notice is required in all situations.
All photography/videotaping must be done using care for patrons and personal privacy must be respected. If participants may be identified in any shot, their explicit permission must be obtained. Participants have a right to decline being in any shot.
Participants may not use the Student Recreation Center for any photography or videography of a promotional nature that benefits a business or company, unless explicit permission has been granted by the Communications Manager. This includes “selfies”, photoshoots, workout videos, or other media that may be posted to a company’s social media accounts, websites, or other promotional material.
Photography/videotaping may not be conducted in the locker rooms and restrooms.
Tour groups, summer camps and conferences, and other special event groups are allowed to use handheld point-and-shoot cameras to document their time within the Student Recreation Center as long as the individual stays with the group at all times and does not negatively impact the experience of patrons. No photography of the Aquatic Center by guests with these groups (including from the viewing window on the second-floor fitness area) is allowed without explicit permission. If a guest with one of these groups is suspected of inappropriately using their photo privileges, they will be asked to put away their camera or leave the facility.
