Small Unmanned Aircraft/Drone Policy
To provide a safe and productive environment for such activity, all use or control of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) taking place within or above the boundaries of Hope College must be pre-approved by Hope College and must fully comply with our policy. This policy is both available in the Student Handbook and as a PDF.
For commercial use (as defined by the FAA but always inclusive of any use for compensation or in connection with a business or employment), authorization from Campus Safety must be properly requested via the Small UAS/Drone Application form no less than 10 days in advance.
The use of drones and model aircraft for hobby or recreational use on Hope College property is not permitted. Drones used for official college educational and research purposes shall follow the Commercial Use application process.
