The University of Texas at Dallas requires fully executed Talent Release Forms (Multi-user Release Form) before using a person's likeness in photos, videos, CD-ROMs, websites, remarks and written work.
University Web Services maintains a photo library containing a wide variety of University photos, e.g., students, faculty, research, buildings, events. To retrieve or download photos, contact Web Services at x4995 or email email@example.com.
Photographic/Third-Party Video Requests
In order to protect the privacy and safety of UT Dallas students, staff and faculty and guard the reputation of our University, no unauthorized commercial video or photography is permitted on UT Dallas premises. No students, faculty or staff may be photographed or filmed without their express permission and a fully executed photo release. Standard exceptions to this policy apply to gatherings or events, e.g., ceremonies and athletic events, wherein there is no reasonable expectation of privacy. Members of the media are requested to contact the Office of Communications (972-883-2155) to schedule photo, video and interview appointments in advance.
Vendors who have performed work for the University are requested to obtain photographs at the time of the completion of their installation or prior to building occupation and operation. Vendor photography following the date of occupation is strongly discouraged. Exceptions to this policy must be initiated and sponsored by a UT Dallas school, office, department or building manager. In those instances, a written request for photographic permission must be submitted to the Office of Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org for approval. The UT Dallas office sponsoring the request will be responsible for escorting the photographer, obtaining University photo releases as necessary, ensuring the privacy of students, staff and faculty, and underwriting any related expenses or charges.
