University Directory Photographs

For a new or replacement University Directory Photograph, University Communications takes directory portraits of faculty and staff in open sessions each month. No appointment is necessary, simply just drop in during a session that suits you. They are indoors and unmasked, so you must be fully vaccinated. The portraits are taken from chest up on a gray backdrop in a photo studio.


The studio is located in the south end of Alumni Gym. Those arriving for portrait sessions should enter through the East Haggard Avenue entrance to Alumni Gym, and the studio is to the left.

Wednesday, August 17: 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
