Film & TV Locations
McMaster’s scenic campus is a sought-after setting for television and film shoots from May to August. Our manicured grounds, wide array of buildings and athletic facilities along with on-site crew accommodation make for a convenient, budget-friendly choice. Our experienced team and beautiful campus will make our location a great choice for your next production.
At this time our photography portal is closed, and we’re unable to approve any photo permit requests. McMaster has suspended all discretionary events until at least the end of August – this includes photography on campus. Please continue to check back for updates, however we do not anticipate this until September, at the earliest. We apologize and we look forward to seeing you on campus again soon. Stay well.
We welcome the opportunity to provide the perfect backdrop for your outdoor photography needs. Our beautiful campus offers many picturesque locations to take advantage of throughout the seasons.
Some points to consider:
A non-refundable fee of $109.00 is required to secure your permit.
Our permit allows access to the outdoor areas of campus, excluding the Athletic fields. We do not allow for any indoor photography.
Throughout the year, certain University events such as Move-In Weekend, Homecoming, Fall Preview Days, etc., will cause access to certain areas on campus to be restricted and unavailable. If your request conflicts with any of these events, we will notify you immediately upon receiving your request.
