How to Use College Logos


A college logo represents the school and what it stands for. As with other logos, college logos are often copyrighted and should only be used with the college's permission. Exceptions may apply depending on your affiliation with the school. The University of Washington School of Public Health in Seattle, Washington, for example, allows students, faculty and staff to use the college's logo without prior permission. When in doubt, check with the public relations/media department or webmaster of your college.

  • Do not edit the logo. Some colleges, such as the Bren School (University of California, Santa Barbara), occasionally permits its logo to be isolated and used as a graphic element, with prior permission.

  • Do not distort the logo. You may resize the logo proportionally only as long as all elements are retained and the image does not get distorted.

  • Retain the fonts as they appear in the original logo. Do not change them to match the fonts in your document or other publications.

  • Do not merge the logo with other graphics on your page. To maintain the logo's integrity, the logo should not clash with other graphics on the page.

  • Use the original logo in color or black-and-white, but do not change its original colors.

  • Leave ample space between the college's logo and other content on the page.
