Credentials: Media and photographer credentials for Queens College Athletics events may be obtained by working press, radio and television by writing or calling the Director of Athletic Communications in the Queens College Athletic Communications Office. All requests should be submitted at least 24 hours prior to the event by phoning the Athletic Communications Office at 718-570-0385.

Postgame Interviews: Locker rooms are closed to the media. A 10-minute cooling off period will be strictly enforced, after which the head coach and any requested players will be made available. 

Requests for visiting coaches and players should be made through the opponent's sports information contact, and all requests should be made prior to the conclusion of the game when at all possible.

Coach & Student-Athlete Interviews: All interview requests for any member of the Queens College athletic staff or any its student-athletes must be made through the Athletic Communications office. Please allow 24 hours for response to each request. All forms of media should also provide 24 hours of advanced notice for all in-person interview requests to allow the Athletic Communications staff to arrange a time/location that will respect each student-athlete's academic and competition schedules.

At no time will the home or cell phone number, or email address, of a coach or student-athlete be released to the media, and we ask all media outlets to respect this policy and the privacy of our student-athletes and coaches. In the case of telephone interview requests, the Athletic Communication staff will arrange for the student-athlete to contact the requesting media member.
