University Departments

Mountaineers LogoUniversity departments may use most of the University marks in situations that indicate University ownership, sponsorship or participation, including but not limited to publications and other departments; stationary; signage; advertising for the department’s services; equipment and supplies; and websites.

University departments may use university trademarks to raise funds for their own organization or charitable support with permission of the Trademark Licensing Office. Items purchased for sale must be acquired from licensed manufacturers and have the design artwork approved by the Licensing Office. The manufacturer will be required to pay royalties on the product in such cases. The trademarks should not be altered.
