On-Campus Media Policy
Georgetown’s campus is private property and written permission from the Office of Strategic Communications is required before external filming or photography can take place in exterior or interior spaces on-campus.
The Office of Strategic Communications is available to assist news media with shooting stills, video and film on campus, including setting up locations and gaining access to restricted areas after permission has been granted. Generally, filming is not allowed in classrooms or student residences. The Office of Strategic Communications may be able to provide b-roll of iconic campus areas, such as Healy Hall and lawn, upon request. For news outlets seeking permission to shoot on university property, or to request access to University B-roll, please contact the Office of Strategic Communications at (202) 687-4328 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Georgetown encourages the use of Skype, Zoom or other remote video capture, for interviews with Georgetown experts. Additionally, the University has a self-service VideoLink studio on-campus available for use by faculty members. On-campus interviews and b-roll may be allowed for members of the University Community, following public health protocols and in coordination with the Office of Strategic Communications.
To learn more about non-press filming on campus, please review our Georgetown Filming Policy and request form.
All campus guests will be required to follow current Georgetown Public Health requirements.
