Please review these guidelines and proceed to the request form via the link below.
Each semester, the administrative office of the Tate Student Center receives numerous requests from students to film video productions within Tate and Memorial Hall in fulfillment of class projects or for their registered student organizations. The Tate Student Center administration supports students’ need to use its facilities for such purposes and seeks to make reasonable accommodation for student requests.
These guidelines outline the process through which students may request permission to film in the public (non-reservable) spaces within Tate and Memorial Hall. The guidelines also apply to external spaces administered by Tate, including the South, West and North Lawns. Students should note that the exterior lawns are also reservable spaces and requests for use of these areas cannot be unconditionally guaranteed.
Students wishing to film inside conference and meeting rooms, Tate Theater, the Grand Hall or other interior reservable spaces must make arrangements through Campus Reservations, Events and Technical Services (CRETS), http://reservations.uga.edu/. Such reservations are subject to CRETS policies and procedures.
The guidelines do not apply to the interior spaces administered by UGA Food Services, including the Bulldog Café, Tate Café, Dawg Snacks or Taste of Home Café. Students must request access directly from UGA Food Services.
Students must agree to the following conditions when requesting public space in Tate or Memorial for the purpose of filming:
1. Productions must be for academic or student organization purposes and not for commercial distribution or other for-profit enterprise.
2. Production must not interfere with the routine operation of the building’s services or offices.
3. Production must not block pedestrian thoroughfares or cause access problems for students and other guests.
4. Filming may be done only during Tate or Memorial operating hours; evening production must be completed at least 30 minutes prior to building closing.
5. Student producers are responsible for ensuring that subjects who appear in their productions are aware of their participation and have given their consent.
6. Student producers must respect the authority of Tate Student Center administrators and the building manager on duty during the time of their filming.
7. Student producers found to be interfering with building operations or causing disruption for other students and guests may be asked to cease filming.
