Photo/Video Approval Request

The Wisconsin Union, as part of UW-Madison, must approve all photography and videography before it is captured.

We can allow non-commercial entities to proceed with prior approval.  You must obtain approval before capturing any images or video on Union/UW-Madison property.  

Conditions for approval: This project will not disrupt the routine functioning of the Wisconsin Union and will not interfere with patrons and their right to privacy. Patrons who are asked to participate or are recognizable in any film/photo activity will be asked to sign a release form. The image/film/video may not be used commercially unless otherwise agreed to in writing.  

Additional Conditions for Summer 2020:
The Terrace is open by reservation only this summer, 3–10 pm daily.  A reservation via OpenTable is needed for any photography sessions.  In addition, all Terrace operations practices will need to be followed (including the six-person group limit and the need to stay within one’s dining area).  Please note the Terrace is fenced off from the Lakeshore path and all of the docks are closed.  For more details, visit the Terrace page.

Please complete the following form to request approval, and allow 24-48 hours for a response.  

Thank you!
