Filming and photographing on campus

You need a permission via email if you want to photograph or film on campus. A permission ensures that you have peace to work, that relevant staff such as porters are informed in advance, and that students are not inconvenienced.

We receive a lot of requests, and most are turned down to give students and staff peace to work. This applies especially to commercial purposes.

General guidelines:

• You must be able to produce a written permission on request on campus.
• You and your team must contribute to preserving peace and order and must not disturb students or staff.
• If subjects can be identified in your shots, you must get their explicit permission. This also applies to people in the background, who can be identified.
• People taking part in an item in connection with cover photos/voxpop/interview must receive a clear explanation of the purpose, and you must respect if they decline.
• You must get written permission from every identifiable person if you are filming or photographing for campaigns, archives, marketing, commercial purposes or anything else that will not be out of news rotation from day to day.
• It is not permitted to film at CBS Library during examinations.
• It is not permitted to film or photograph in connection with lectures/classes without an extra permission from the teacher.

Before you ask for permission:

Before you call or send an email to get permission, have the following information ready: Which media/organisation wants to film/photograph, who is the contact person in charge, what is the purpose, date and time, participants and where on campus do you want to be located. You cannot expect to get a permission even if your production meets the requirements, unless you ask well in advance - at least one week before.
