Correct use of the logos

The logo immediately identifies our University, and there are rules set in place to ensure appropriate use through consistent application. This assures quality and strength of the University of St Andrews brand.

See more on the correct and incorrect use of the logo

Logos must be used exactly as described to maintain a coherent and distinctive identity for the University. For example:

  • Alternative graphics must not be used in the shield or close to the logo.
  • The University name must always be included.
  • The shield must not be produced on its own without the University name unless in exceptional circumstances and discussed with Print and Design in the first instance.

Only in very exceptional cases will additional or standalone logos and brand expressions be considered for Schools, units or services. Approval will only be given by the director of Corporate Communications once it has been demonstrated in a detailed report that a clear academic or market imperative underlines the requirement for another logo or brand.
