Georgetown Name Usage and Vendor PR Policy

Georgetown does not provide endorsements of products or vendors or contribute to vendor case studies. Upon approval from the Office of Communications, a vendor may utilize Georgetown’s name in a text list of customers or clients, or in a work portfolio. Any logo or likeness usage must be approved by the Georgetown Visual Identity Group.

Georgetown does not generally issue joint press releases with vendors or outside organizations, and press releases using the Georgetown University name must be approved by Georgetown’s Office of Communications. Releases must be factual and may not include vendor promotion, including quotes from university representatives that may imply endorsement.

Exceptions may be made at times where the objectives of the collaboration are consistent with Georgetown’s mission and values. In this case the Office of Communications may approve an exception for limited use of the Georgetown name and marks.

Any questions or approvals should be coordinated through the Office of Communications.

Filming on Georgetown University’s Campus

During the COVID-19 pandemic Georgetown is imposing restrictions on campus to reduce density. As a result, we are encouraging the use of Skype, Zoom or other remote video capture, for interviews with Georgetown experts. Additionally, the University has a self-service VideoLink studio on-campus available for use by faculty members. For use of University b-roll and photography, please contact the Office of Strategic Communications at (202) 687-4328 or media@georgetown.edu.

On-campus interviews and b-roll may be allowed for members of the University Community, following public health protocols and in coordination with the Office of Strategic Communications. All approved press will be required to follow Georgetown’s COVID-19 Filming and Photography Policy. Outdoor filming is encouraged.

Georgetown’s campus is private property and written permission from the Office of Strategic Communications is required before external filming or photography can take place on-campus.
