Campus Media Guidelines

The guidelines below for media apply to all members of the public who are not being disruptive.

Outside public spaces

Media have full access to open, public areas across campus. This means they can approach people, film and photograph at these locations without prior approval.

Office space

Media can access lobbies, hallways and office foyers during open building hours, but they cannot enter actual offices without being invited.

Academic space

Media can access lobbies and hallways during open building hours but they cannot enter classrooms without permission from the instructor/professor.

Dining halls

Media can access lobby areas of dining halls and the dining areas by calling 517-884-0660 or by purchasing a meal.

Residence halls

There is a distinction between public space (lobbies) and private space (restricted living wings). Media can access the public space of residence halls during open building hours and talk to/interview sources. Media cannot access the restricted living wings of residence halls unless they are invited by someone who lives there. If they are invited, they can enter that person’s room for an interview.
