Filming and Photography on Campus

Update - October 2020: In accordance with the best practices of the County of San Diego and the State of California, the Department of University Marketing and Communications has developed video/photography guidelines for University of San Diego employees whose work requires them to conduct in-person videography or photography sessions on campus or elsewhere.

The University of San Diego's stunning campus makes it an ideal location for spectacular photography and video. We can help facilitate and manage those interested in coming to campus to film or photograph.

Before arriving, we encourage you to review a Campus Map or visit our Flickr page to see the beauty that USD has to offer.

Those who are interested in photography or video for personal projects or use are welcome to use the campus as needed. For those interested in photography or video for commercial use, please fill review and fill out the following forms:
