Student Productions

The Department of Public Safety is happy to support student film and theater productions on University property.  If you are planning a student production, please read the information below carefully to ensure you are following all applicable University requirements.

Prop Weapons

Weapons of any type are not permitted on University property.  The Department of Public Safety may approve the use of prop weapons under specific circumstances.  To request permission to use prop weapons, contact Public Safety at (310) 506-4700.  Use of prop weapons without permission is a serious violation of University policy and may result in judicial action, alarm in the campus community, and a response by the Department of Public Safety and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Fire Safety Permits

If your production may pose an increased risk of fire, or may unduly activate the campus fire/life safety system, you must request a fire safety permit.  Read more about fire safety permits here.

Student Filming

Students conducting film projects on campus should consult with their professor to ensure they have followed all University requirements before beginning production.  A signed Location Agreement should be brought or emailed to Public Safety after it has been approved by a University Scheduler.
