Campus departments and student organizations frequently purchase merchandise that include university trademarks for promotions or events.
Requests can include lapel pins, cups, mugs, hats, apparel, bags, umbrellas, coasters, photo frames, and many other items. Each of these items is an extension of the university’s brand or image. Just as there are branding guidelines for printing purposes, similar policies hold true for The University of Texas at San Antonio merchandise.
Because the use of The University of Texas at San Antonio’s name or other UTSA trademarks with an organization name implies association with the university, only campus departments and student organizations that are recognized by the STUDENT ACTIVITIES are allowed to use UTSA trademarks in conjunction with their name.
As part of the UT System, UTSA works in conjunction with the Office of Trademark Licensing at UT Austin to manage and monitor the use of UTSA’s valuable intellectual property.
