News media are welcome to photograph or shoot video of university buildings and scenes using the public sidewalks and areas. For permission to shoot on university property, please contact SDSU Media Relations.

If you are looking for a particular photo, we may already have one you can use. Please check out our SDSU Photo Gallery or contact SDSU Media Relations if you cannot find what you are looking for.

Generally, filming is not allowed in classrooms, student residences or in the library. Media Relations may be able to provide news media with basic b-roll, such as classroom instruction, laboratory research or campus scenery.

Logo Usage

In order to use SDSU's brand elements, such as a logo or images, you must be either an official college, department or program, or a recognized student organization. Or you must receive written permission from the SDSU Marketing and Communications Department. 

Logo use must comply with Graphic Guidelines for Using SDSU Logos and Symbols produced by the SDSU Department of Marketing and Communications office.

University symbols and marks are owned and licensed by SDSU. They may not be incorporated into any other design to create a new symbol and are not to be treated as illustrations.

University symbols may not be electronically or manually altered, stretched, outlined, given drop shadows or enclosed in shapes that appear to be a part of the symbol identity.

As a general policy the SDSU logos are reserved for university communications and community relations. The use of SDSU logos implies endorsement by the university as an institution. Permission is required for non-university use.

General guidelines for the visual and verbal articulation of the SDSU brand, as well as specific directions for the application of our updated logo and related elements, can be found on the SDSU Brand Central website. For more information and appropriate approvals, contact SDSU Media Relations.
