Nevada Athletics Media Credential Policy
Requests for season and single-game credentials and parking should be faxed or mailed on official letterhead to the Nevada Media Services Office (fax: 775-784-4386) at least 48 hours prior to the event. Space is limited in many of our venues, so credentials will be issued to full-time, salaried journalists from media outlets that cover the University of Nevada regularly and substantially or to representatives who regularly and customarily perform services for that outlet.
Credentials are not transferable and should only be used by media members with a legitimate working function. Non-working individuals from a media outlet, children, spouses, friends, etc., will not be permitted in the media areas. Violation of this policy will result in immediate revocation of credentials. Issuance of season media credentials does not guarantee working space on press row or in media work areas.
Priority is granted to media entities that cover the University of Nevada on a regular and substantial basis, which includes coverage of press conferences, open practices, home and road games, and to visiting media members, using the following guidelines:
Due to limited space, credentials will generally not be issued to freelance or amateur writers or photographers without a specific assignment received in writing from the assigning organization. Requests from these individuals will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and granted on a game-by-game basis when space is available at the discretion of the Nevada Media Services Office. Requests from university students who are studying journalism or photojournalism also will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and granted on a game-by-game basis when space is available at the discretion of the Nevada Media Services Office.
Credentials will be issued to websites on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Nevada Media Services Office. Priority will be given to websites that are affiliated with an accredited media outlet. Websites must have editorial, news-gathering content and not merely sponsor message boards, message centers or chat rooms where people are allowed to post anonymous information.
Each sport at the University of Nevada may have its own team-specific additions to this policy. Those policies are available via the media services contact for each respective sport.
By acceptance of a credential, the bearer agrees to abide by all of the University of Nevada, Western Athletic Conference and NCAA policies and procedures as well as conduct him/herself in a professional and ethical manner. Violation of any of these policies will result in immediate revocation of credentials. The Nevada Media Services Office reserves the right to revoke or deny credentials at any time.
