Media Coverage: Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have a one-on-one interview with His Holiness?

No. UNI made this request for media, however due to His Holiness's limited availability and security issues, we were unable to schedule media availability with His Holiness.

All media equipment must be inside of McLeod Center in the northwest corner of the concourse by 8 a.m. for a security check. Individuals may pick up their credentials until 9 a.m. Doors to McLeod Center close at 9:15 a.m. for the morning panel discussion.

Where can I park?

Parking is available in the lots surrounding McLeod Center and UNI-Dome. See the parking map for more information.

Can I take my camera outside between sessions for live shots?

No. The U.S. State Department requires that all equipment to be used inside McLeod Center must be inside McLeod Center by 8 a.m. for a security check. All equipment will be checked at one time in the northwest corner of the concourse level. This includes cameras, computers, microphones, digital recorders, tapes, phones, etc.

Once the security check for media is done, no more equipment will be allowed inside. Equipment cannot be taken out and returned at any time during the day. No exceptions. People can leave the building and return (passing through a metal detector each time) but equipment cannot.

Can we use footage for a taped special program?

Yes, however the program cannot be run in its entirety and cannot be used for any commercial purposes.
