A film permit is required for any student film or photography shoot on the UCLA campus. Registered UCLA students may apply for a UCLA student film permit provided the filming is required for UCLA course credit or related to an approved Registered Campus Organization (RCO) activity. There is no permit charge for UCLA film students or approved RCO student filming. UCLA Extension students requesting to film on campus for Extension course credit must pay a permit processing fee of $70 (see film guidelines for other Extension student requirements). All required student permit back up documentation including a completed film warrant and location confirmation form and a valid BruinCard must be submitted to the Events Office a minimum of 5 working days before the shoot date to receive a permit.
Fully enrolled UCLA students shooting for personal projects and non-UCLA students shooting for degree course credits, are subject to the same rules and regulations that apply to commercial film shoots. UCLA does not waive any campus location or service fees for these types of shoots. However, the film permit fee is reduced.
Discounts are not given to non-UCLA or UCLA Extension Students unless the project is required for an enrolled course or degree completion. Please contact the Events Office for more information.
All UCLA and non-UCLA students must review the following Student Film Shoot Guidelines:
