Filming at Pepperdine University
Pepperdine University is a world-class filming location available for commercial filmings,
photo shoots, and a variety of professional projects.
Located on 832 acres between the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Pepperdine University offers a multitude of scenic views. Both interior and exterior locations are available to best fit your filming needs.
Please reach out to determine availability of various locations on campus. Normal University business and previously scheduled University events may limit availability, but Special Programs is happy to work with you on finding a mutually beneficial solution. Please note that Pepperdine University requires approval for filmings, which is based on the project being appropriate and consistent with Pepperdine University's Christian values. Please see CONTENT on "Guidelines for Filming" for additional information.
Some areas are more available during the school year than others, one of which is Alumni Park, the expansive green space that surrounds Pepperdine overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Please be sure to read the "Guidelines For Filming."
All requesters are required to complete the filming "Inquiry Form."
A minimum of five (5) full, complete business days is requested between commitment and filming date. Additional lead time is highly recommended, in order to ensure the availability of campus locations, especially when multiple locations are requested.
