Application for Non-Commercial Filming (For the Media)

The CUHK Communications and Public Relations Office (CPRO) coordinates applications for non-commercial filming in the campus.

However, in other circumstances, media organisations should obtain prior approval before commencing filming in the campus in locations involving the outdoor area of CUHK main campus, and / or the indoor and outdoor areas managed by the Colleges or Departments. 

Filming applications should be submitted to CPRO (email: or fax: 2603 5115) at least seven working days before the filming date. The University will conduct an individual approval of each of the filming applications and will inform the applicant in writing, in advance, if the application has been approved.
