They may not be placed next to or combined with any other text, image, UH Logo or any other organization’s logo. Spacing and size relationships between the logotype have been carefully established and calibrated so that university identity will remain consistent in all materials. Official logos may not be depicted in any other color or format than the examples shown here.

An official UH logo is required in all communications and materials.

Do not add shadows or other elements.
Do not alter the colors or reverse the colors of the logos.

The University of Houston wordmark is the graphic depiction of the name “University of Houston” in a type format. It is a one-of-a-kind signature, which identifies our university and projects our unique identity. An important key to presenting a strong and consistent image is the correct use of the wordmark. If you would like to request a new logo suite or an udpate to a current logo suite, please contact email@example.com.

Primary unit wordmarks
Secondary unit wordmarks
Tertiary unit wordmarks
Please note: Tertiary logos are only created for colleges and top-level (non-academic) units.
In order to maintain the integrity of the wordmark, please note the required minimum distance allowed around the wordmark is the height of the letter "N" in Houston, as seen in the example.
Collegiate logos are a long-standing and well-respected tradition in higher education. Alumni, students, faculty, and staff instantly recognize their university by its logo and often wear it with great pride. The Interlocking UH will most often be seen as a mark among the “Cougar Family” and supports school spirit in current students, alumni, and sports.
Please use the logo with the registration mark in all instances.
In order to maintain the integrity of the interlocking UH, please note that the minimum distance allowed around the logo is relative to the height of the logo and should be half the height of the logo. For example, if a logo is 1.0" high the required clear space is 0.5".
The Official Seal of Arms of General Sam Houston, as handed down to him from noble ancestors. The simple Escutcheon in the center of the seal consists of checkered chevrons denoting nobility, and three Martlets, gentle Lowland birds symbolizing peace and deliverance. A winged hourglass is above the shield and surmounting this, the motto, “In Tempore” (In Time). Greyhounds were placed at the sides to indicate the speed in giving aid. The seal was adopted by UH in 1938 in conjunction with the construction of the campus.
As an official mark of the university, the use of the UH Seal is limited for use by the President’s Office and Provost’s Office. Doing so helps retain the seals’ integrity for very official “executive” communications and designated ceremonies, like commencement.
