Media Access

Anyone who would like to take pictures, video tape, interview, or use multimedia in the Student Recreation Complex must complete a request form. Completion of the request is required for all media inquiries including class projects through the journalism school.

Applicants must fill out a form at least 48 hours in advance to allow for approval consideration.

Breaking news situations, event coverage and time sensitive access will be considered by an associate director. However, not all requests will be guaranteed approval.

  • Event coverage for MU Swimming and Diving must be requested through the MizzouRec media request form. Interviews and access outside of competition also require MizzouRec approval. Additionally, all requests to cover MU Swimming & Diving must be approved in advance by Mizzou Athletics.
  • General event coverage within MizzouRec requires advance approval. Individuals arriving day of event will not have guaranteed access.
  • Program coverage (TigerX, Club Sports, RecSports, etc.) requests must provide SPECIFIC information indicating contact has been made with program participants. We do not permit coverage of spaces or programs without prior arrangement with instructors/participants and all requests must have official department approval. Due to the number of requests we receive, permission is not guaranteed. Please take this into consideration when planning for class projects.
