Each University of Illinois campus offers high-quality images for use in brochures, reports, and other printed materials as well as in presentations and on unit websites. Taking advantage of these free or low-cost resources is not only a cost-effective solution to photo needs, it is an opportunity to support campus branding through a consistent and quality visual identity.
The Urbana photo site and one of the Chicago sites require a log-in. Allow time for processing of your login request.
Units in University Administration may use these resources as well. If you need a few images for a project, contact Ginny Hudak-David in University Relations (217-333-6400).
Photos of U of I senior administration are available on the photo repository page.

Taking Photos at Events
If you are taking photos at an event and plan to use those images where someone can be identified, you should obtain a signed photo release form. Urbanan Public Affairs offers several versions of release forms as well as a good summary of why such releases are necessary. The Urbana-Champaign forms can be modified or replicated by units in Chicago, Springfield, or UA.
