Filming Application and Resources

Individuals may take photographs, shoot video on any campus, and record written and spoken statements ("Filming" or "Film") for personal, noncommercial use without permission from ASU. However, such recordings may not be broadcast or used for commercial purposes. Be aware that private recordings may be prohibited in certain locations or at select events. Please also be aware of any privacy rights of the people you film or record.

Note to ASU students, faculty or staff participating in any Filming: Arizona State University and Arizona Board of Regents policies that govern your conduct also apply to images of you that are captured on Film. Therefore, you may be subject to disciplinary action if you are filmed engaging in behavior that violates ASU policies. Also be aware that, even if you do not engage in prohibited behavior, the resulting Film may offer an unflattering portrayal of you as an individual or member of a group. Please address any concerns with the appropriate ASU office and the producer of the Film before agreeing to participate.

Filming (which includes photo, motion picture, video recording, or written or spoken statements) on any campus requires advance approval by ASU and must comply with the ASU’s Filming policy, unless the Filming is for personal, noncommercial use. 

NOTE: Submit your application to Film on campus at least 10 business days prior to your shoot date. ASU requires this amount of time to process your request.

Please review the following documents prior to submitting your application to Film:

It may take up to five business days after submitting your Filming Application online to be contacted by a representative from ASU. Please note: prior to commencement of Filming at ASU you will be required to complete and sign the ASU Filming Agreement.

Filming Application


As a current ASU student you may Film (which includes photography, motion picture, video recordings, or written or spoken statements) at many facilities and locations on all ASU campuses for class projects, provided you first secure permission from authorized ASU decision makers. If you are a current ASU student and Filming for commercial use, you must follow the procedures under the "On Campus Filming Application" tab.

Please review the below video tutorials for both safety and location request procedures.

Filming for classwork is restricted to Monday–Thursday after 5 p.m., Friday after 2 p.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday.

NOTE: For classwork Filming, the application must be submitted at least four business days prior to shoot date, as ASU requires this amount of time to process your request. (Non-classwork Filming requires 10 days for processing. Please see "Filming On Campus Application" tab)

Upon submitting your Student Film/Photo/Video Shoot Application, download and print the following documents:

The Student Filming Agreement and Safety Policy document is used to secure authorization for the shoot location/facility. A separate agreement must be completed for each location request. It is each student's responsibility to obtain permission from an authorized ASU decision maker who will sign and approve each Filming location that you would like to use.

An approved ASU Location Permit will be emailed to you as a PDF within two business days after your completed forms are received. The permit includes instructions for contacting ASU Police in advance and on the day of your production before you start to film.

To request to Film on campus, please complete and submit the Classwork Filming Application.
