Filming On Campus

Thank you for your interest in filming at Georgia Southern University.

The University’s campuses are considered by many to be among the most scenic and beautiful college campuses in the country. Comprised of educational and recreational facilities in Statesboro, Savannah and Hinesville, Georgia, the University is home to more than 27,000 students.

For convenience, the word “filming” applies to motion pictures, filming, videotaping, still photography and digital imaging. The guidelines below will assist you in your request. The guidelines apply to the University’s campuses in Statesboro, Savannah and Hinesville as well as any other official Georgia Southern University facilities.

Permission to film on campus will be granted only if, in the sole determination of Georgia Southern University, it is in the University’s best interest to permit such filming. The University reserves the right to deny permission to film on campus. Current Georgia Southern University students are not required to complete a request for class projects.

Film Request Application

Filming on University property is permitted only if it does not interfere with normal University business and previously scheduled events.

Approval to film on University property for commercial or non-news purposes must be obtained prior to filming. The issuing of approval is coordinated through the Georgia Southern University Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing.

To begin the process, submit a Film Request Application. The Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing will review the application in conjunction with the appropriate campus or facility and work with the applicant to ensure requirements are met prior to issuing approval.

A minimum of 10 business days (two weeks) is normally required to properly consider any request.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing by phone at 912-478-NEWS (6397).
