We gladly welcome media representatives to our campus. Prior to arrival, please notify the Office of Public Relations to facilitate your visit.
Access to Campus
You can schedule your visit with our public relations team by calling 803.786.3649. Unauthorized visitors may be stopped by campus police.
Columbia College will provide reasonable access to campus. However, we may regulate media access to avoid disrupting 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.
Any reporter or news crew wanting to interview, photograph, or record inside residence halls or the student union must first be approved by the dean of students and must then be accompanied by an assigned escort while in these halls. Time in the halls may be limited. For further information or to make arrangements, please contact us.
Reporters and news crews may park in Parking Lot A (corner of Colonial Drive and Columbia College Drive). If your vehicle is not marked with a station or publication logo, place a media business card on the driver’s side of the dashboard. Although vehicles are generally not permitted on the interior campus, limited vehicle access closer to certain buildings can be arranged through the Office of Public Relations.
