Drones and remote pilots

To maintain the safety of our entire campus community, university policy (FO-05) requires that remote pilots first obtain permission from the Division of Public Safety before conducting a drone flight on campus property.

We understand that remote pilots have a wide variety reasons to fly drones on campus, and we do everything we can to work with you to ensure your flight is as safe as possible for you and the other members of our campus community. We appreciate your willingness to work with us to meet your needs.

You can start the process by submitting a request below. We work to provide you with a response as quickly as possible — usually within one business day.
