Filming on Campus

Shooting Photos or Video on Our Campuses

Media Film Crews

If you plan to take video on any of our campuses or interview a faculty member or student in person, you must contact the Office of Strategic Communications and External Affairs (SCEA) public relations team. No film crews or reporters will be allowed to film on campus without permission of the university and may be escorted off campus by a member of our security team. After you’ve connected with the media relations team, a member of the SCEA staff will alert our security team of your plans, and meet and escort you and your associates, including film crews, and photographers, while on campus.

Commercial Film Crews

Our campuses have been the backdrop for movies such as Arthur and Three Days of the Condor, and TV shows including Gossip Girl and Four Weddings. To find out more about rental fees, insurance requirements, security arrangements, and bookings, please call 516.686.7855.

Any use of still or video photography filmed on campus for commercial profit or distribution must be reviewed and approved in advance by SCEA. Please note: The use of still or video images from the campus for advocacy of political positions or candidacies is strictly prohibited.

Private Parties Wishing to Shoot Video or Photography on Campus

Still or video photography filmed on campus for personal use by non-New York Tech community members must be approved in advance by SCEA's public relations team. Once this is approved, SCEA will inform campus security of the time, date, and location of the shoot. Those without pre-approval may be asked to leave campus by campus security.

Please note: This policy does include photography or videos taken at university-sponsored events, where guests are encouraged to take photos and/or video.
