Logo lockups—also known as cobrands—are logos for our colleges, schools, top-level administrative units (under the supervision of a vice chancellor), or entities one level down from a college, school, or top-level administrative unit. They align with our brand, and they use clear, consistent, and purposeful language.

Lockup Eligibility Guidelines
The university’s logo is critical to who we are as a brand. It represents our institution at the highest level. To protect the integrity of our logo, the university has established definitive guidelines for lockup eligibility.
To be eligible for an official university lockup, an area must be one of the following:
- Top-level administrative unit (under the supervision of a vice chancellor)
- One level down from a college, school, or top-level administrative unit
Please note that logos are primarily intended for university operations that are permanent and have a full-time staff. Being listed on the official university names list does not guarantee that an area is eligible for a logo lockup.
Far from wanting to impose limitations with our logo, we hope to encourage its most intended and strongest use: to stand alone. There is strength in our brand, and if we work together, we can express our story in a unified way.
The following examples show the structure of a lockup. For more information about logos, refer to the Brand Guidelines.
An official university lockup may be enhanced with a graphic identity only under specific circumstances:
- It is for short-term usage.
- It may not be used for recruitment.
- The area it symbolizes is open to students, faculty, staff, and the community.
