Welcome to the Office of Brand, Trademarks and Licensing!

Hello and welcome! Please use the above menu bar to navigate through our new and improved website. Your patience is appreciated as we work through any minor adjustments.

 

A Brief Introduction

 
The Office of Brand, Trademarks and Licensing works to protect and promote the use of The University of Texas System’s name and logos and to ensure that the public can properly identify and associate the logos with officially licensed products bearing the institutions’ marks.
 
The component institutions of The University of Texas System (UT System) have achieved reputations as outstanding institutions of higher education. Reputation is specific to the name of the UT System and each component institution and is represented by the seal, trademarks, logos, and service marks used by the UT System and its component institutions (UT Trademarks). The system trademarks are registered with the U.S. Office of Patent and Trademarks, the state of Texas and in many foreign countries. These marks are the exclusive property of The Board of Regents.
 
A license is required for products featuring UT Trademarks through the Office of Brand, Trademarks and Licensing and Learfield Licensing Partners. University entities must also use a licensed vendor to produce licensed merchandise. Annual royalty income from more than 400 licensees is used to support the mission of the UT System and its component institutions.
 
Starting July 1, 2016, the El Paso campus will join Learfield Licensing Partners and the Austin campus will start a 10 year agreement with 289c Apparel, Ltd. You can learn more about both of these companies under the "About" tab in the menu bar.
