Filming, Photography and Taping Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in Temple University as a possible location for your production. Permission is required for all photo, film or video shooting for commercial purposes on all Temple University campuses. A location fee will be charged. Please contact Eryn Jelesiewicz of the Office of University Communications at 215-204-8898 regarding requests for commercial filming/taping.
Anyone who wishes to film on campus for commercial, non-news purposes must submit in writing detailed information about the proposed project, including
Date and time of shooting
Length of shooting
Number of people involved in each day’s shooting
List of equipment and vehicles used in connection with the project
Intended use of final material
- All movie scripts must be reviewed and approved by the University Communications Office.
- Photography and filming/taping will be allowed only during times that are least likely to be disruptive to the academic process and student life.
A certificate of insurance is required, naming Temple University, its officers, employees and agents as additional insured, providing comprehensive general liability insurance, including personal injury and property damage.
All location fees are due on the day of the shoot. Additional expenses (such as for Temple Police or Facilities Services) will be the responsibility of the requesting agency or production company.
Photographs supplied by the University are copyrighted materials that may not be manipulated without express consent from the copyright holder (either the photographer or university department/office that owns the photo). Please contact Betsy Manning, manager of photography & digital assets, for help.
