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).

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.
