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 the Associate Director, Programs and Communication at least two (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.
- Filming or photography for class projects, group practices, newspapers, articles, and all other media must abide by this policy.
Once approved by Campus Recreation, 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 cease filming and must contact the Associate Director, Programs and Communication for permission to return at a later time for media needs. 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.
Patrons’ cell phones may be used to take photos or videos of themselves or friends
working out within the facility and must remain for personal use only. In the event that Campus Recreation staff suspect a guest is inappropriately using the cell
phone privilege or if their engagement in selfies is causing discomfort to others, they will be asked to put their phone away or leave the facility if they continue to violate the policy.
