Photo / Video Guidelines

Due to concerns for federal privacy regulations (FERPA and HIPAA), at all times other than designated public events, photography (including video) that is not official business of the university is forbidden in university buildings unless the photographer is accompanied by Public Affairs. Outdoor photography is permitted.

In addition, in the hospital, outpatient clinics and all patient-care areas of UI Health, UIC’s clinical health enterprise, HIPAA regulations require that a patient authorize release of any information pertaining to his/her stay, except in those cases of required disclosures. Public Affairs must ensure that all patients photographed, interviewed or otherwise identified have signed the required consent forms. (UI Hospital Management Policy and Procedure IM 1.04, February 2009.)
