Visual Services

DePaul Campus Quad at Night

We document the people, places and events of DePaul University by providing photography, videography and multimedia services to the division of Marketing and Communications, the President's Office and other campus partners.

Scope of Services

DePaul is a vibrant community of thousands of teachers, learners, staff professionals and Chicago partners. With our limited resources, we prioritize the following areas in our coverage:
  • University marketing and communications efforts
  • Initiatives of the Office of the President and Board of Trustees
  • The University’s Strategic Plan
  • Local, regional, and national news events
  • Major university events such as Convocation and Commencement
  • Official university publications such as The DePaul Magazine
  • Headshots for faculty and staff​
Requests that typically fall outside of our focus include:
  • Student headshots
  • Conferences, banquets, parties, and receptions
  • College, department or student group events and ceremonies
  • College, department or student group informational or instructional videos
  • Sports and athletics
We maintain a list of university-approved freelance photographers to assist you with projects that we cannot accommodate (at your department’s expense.) Contact our team​ to receive the most recent list.​

Photo Database

We maintain the Visual Services Photo Database, a collection of images that highlights DePaul, as well as the Chicago area.
