Student Groups and Campus Organizations

Registered* student groups and campus organizations may use the UCI name for purposes of geographical designation, but not as part of their name:

Student Organization - UCI UCI - Student Organization

To use an official UCI word mark, logo or other trademark on a commercial or consumer product, registered student groups and campus organizations must follow the process described below. Commercial and consumer products include goods for sale, resale (fundraising), internal use or to be given away.


* Unregistered student groups should contact Student Life and Leadership at 949-824-5181 or visit the Campus Organizations website about the registration process.


Trademarks and Social Media

UCI supports the use of social media by its community members as a way to facilitate communication. Social media, however, may blur the line between personal voice and institutional voice. Thus, those who plan to use the name or trademarks of UCI on social media should familiarize themselves with applicable university and campus policies, including the Policy on Use of University Name and Seals, Campus Names and Seal and Trademarks (Sec. 700-20), the Code of Student Conduct, and the UCI Brand and Visual Identity Standards.

Social media posters should be aware of the following:

  • Official trademarks, logos and other university or campus images and iconography may not be used on personal social media sites.
  • Use of official trademarks, logos and other campus images and iconography by authorized individuals and groups (e.g., UCI faculty, staff, and departments) on social media sites must conform to the UCI Brand and Visual Identity Standards.
