Media Policy

The University of Maryland aims to service media requests with accurate and timely information while also telling the story of the university and its leadership, faculty, students and alumni.

Media that are visiting UMD’s campus are asked to notify University Communications in advance by emailing mediainfo@umd.edu, dialing 301-257-0073 or by communicating directly with any member of the University Communications staff.  Exceptions include members of the media covering athletics. Those individuals should coordinate directly with the UMD Athletics Communications Office.

Campus Filming Guidelines

Filming on campus by external production companies, organizations and students requires completed filming application and approval from the University Communications office. Submit application to University Communications at a minimum of 10 business days prior to your film date request. 

All requests to film at a UMD athletics facility must be coordinated through University Athletics. Please contact Josh Kaplan at 301.314.9729.

A Filming Fee of $1,000 per day is required in advance for all non-news/commercial filming. Other fees may apply, including security escorts, room rentals and parking permits. 

A Certificate of Insurance for $1,000,000 with a 30-day cancellation notice, which names the University of Maryland as an additional insured, is required in advance for all filming. 

All requests will receive a timely response via e-mail and University Communications reserves the right to decline any request.
