Filming and Photography on Campus

The School of Foreign Service in Qatar is located on the campus of Education City in Doha, Qatar. Education City is private property. Advertising and commercial filming projects are prohibited except with written permission from the Office of Public Affairs. Call +974 4457 8100 for more information.

Permission to film in any exterior or interior spaces of the SFS-Qatar facilities must be approved by and coordinated with the Office of Public Affairs. Permission must be granted from individual faculty for classrooms and laboratories and by administrators through the Office of Public Affairs for other spaces.

This policy applies to any type of photography — stills, video and film — and to any reporters with cameras. The Office of Public Affairs is available to assist news media with shooting on campus if needed, including setting up locations and gaining access to restricted areas when permission has been granted.

Many facilities on the Education City campus are controlled by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. Access to QF-controlled facilities must be coordinated through the Qatar Foundation Communications Directorate. Please call +974 4454 0000 for more information.
