Using the Photo Galleries

Purdue Marketing provides a collection of public, free-use galleries by the university community. These galleries contain photos related to general campus scenes, landmarks, buildings, and major campus events.

Downloading from the public galleries

You do NOT need to log in to download photos. A password ("PURDUE") will allow the selected photos to download.

Usage guidelines

The photo information is included in the photo metadata. Please credit the photographer if one is listed; if not, please credit Purdue Marketing when using the photo.

Photos may be used for Purdue promotional purposes by the campus community. You may also use the photos for personal use, which includes desktops, screen savers, social media icons, and other similar purposes in expressing Purdue spirit.

Use for promotion of non-Purdue organizations is prohibited unless in partnership with Purdue. These uses require written authorization by Purdue Marketing.

All photos in the gallery should not be digitally altered, changed, modified or manipulated in any way that changes the content, meaning, subject matter or look of the original photo. Basic cropping and retouching are permitted provided the original intent of the image and subject matter is not changed.


If you have questions regarding your planned usage or other topics related to these galleries, please contact our help center. The help center is staffed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on normal business days, excluding holidays, weekends and Purdue's winter shutdown (between Christmas and the New Year). You should normally receive a response within 24 business hours.
