Use Syracuse University Trademarks

Individuals, Businesses & Organizations

Anyone or any business/organization wishing to use the University’s trademarks or verbiage on any product must have a license before offering the product/goods for sale. This also includes sale to University departments, campus organizations and recognized student organizations. Premiums, promotions and advertising are included, as well.

Individuals, businesses and organizations should apply for a license.


Recognized Student Organizations & Campus Departments

In order for the University to maintain and protect its value, permission must be obtained from this office before using the University names/marks/logos on items used as giveaways, fundraisers or for internal use (shirts for staff, plaques, etc.). In addition, a licensed vendor must be used for production.

RSOs and campus departments should request permission to use University trademarks.


Public & Private Schools

We are always complimented when a school wishes to use one of our marks as their mascot, but our policy does not allow our marks to be used by any other educational institution, including public or private schools. In setting this policy, many factors were taken into consideration including product liability, control of how the marks are used and who manufactures the product, and the policies of our peer institutions throughout the United States.
