Student Photography Initiative (SPIN)

SPIN, an initiative within Student Engagement, was created to help students and student organizations at UVA capture their events and experiences through photography AT NO COST. To request a SPIN photographer at your next event, go here.

*SPIN primarily focuses on event photography and would consider other ways to be supportive. 



  • HOOVIEW and @UVA are two excellent avenues for anyone within the UVA community to advertise events and initiatives on Grounds. Both exist to promote communication among students, faculty, administration, and the Charlottesville community.
    • HooView is a display system for digital advertisements (flyers) across network-enabled screens on Grounds. UVA entities can submit a flyer to HooView for approval.  To submit content for HooView, please visit the @UVA homepage, log in, and click the link under the HooView Submission Form. More details on submissions are included there. 
    • @UVA is our student engagement platform where students explore opportunities to get involved and manage their student organization pages. The platform also includes a bulletin board and calendar for announcements and event details. Primary Contacts for Departments and registered student organizations (CIOs, SSOs, etc.) can go to their page on @UVA and create “News” articles to share event announcements.


    • ONE posting per organization, per event, per board
    • Flyers should not cover up other flyers (slight overlap is ok)
    • All postings are removed on Sunday night
