Photo, Video & Logo Guidelines

Shooting Photography or Video at Boston University

Boston University is a beautiful, open, and vibrant urban campus abounding with students, faculty, and visitors.

News media are welcome to photograph or shoot video of University buildings and scenes using the public sidewalks and ways. For permission to shoot on University property, please contact Public Relations at 617-353-2240.

Generally, filming is not allowed in classrooms or student residences. Public Relations may also be able to provide news media with some B-roll requests, such as classroom instruction, laboratory research, or campus beauty shots.

General guidelines for the visual and verbal articulation of the Boston University brand, as well as specific directions for the application of our updated logo and related elements, can be found by visiting the Brand Identity Standards website.
