Fresno State Media Guide

CAMPUS ACCESS: Before arriving on campus, members of the media should complete the daily screening questionnaire on their mobile device or print the completed web-based form from home. If you receive a green checkmark, take a screenshot of the confirmation to show if you are asked. If you receive a red “X,” you are not permitted to come to campus but are encouraged to contact your medical provider.
Please send an email to when you plan to be on campus, indicating when you will be here and your intended destination. While masks are no longer required, we strongly encourage their continued use, as face coverings are still a valuable tool in the fight against COVID-19, especially in large group settings.

The Fresno State Media Guide is designed to give journalists, researchers, the University community and others information they need to learn more about Fresno State or to arrange an interview with a faculty member or administrator.

As a public institution, the University is generally an open and public place that provides news media reasonable access. However, the University may regulate media access so as not to disrupt teaching or research; to protect the health and safety of students and staff; to protect the privacy of students and others who live on campus; and to comply with state and federal laws on student and personnel data.

The guidelines described in the link below pertain to media access to Fresno State-owned or -controlled property and to any individual or group conducting interviews, making audio or video recordings or photographic images for dissemination to the public via commercial or noncommercial news and information outlets, including the Internet.
