Founded in 1881, the University of Connecticut is well-known and regarded as one of the top public universities in the United States. To maintain the University's respected reputation, it is critical that entities representing UConn and its image do so consistently and properly.
UConn’s Office of Trademark Licensing and Branding serves four primary purposes:
Promote UConn through licensed products and other licensing arrangements.
Preserve UConn’s history by protecting historically significant and important trademarks.
Protect UConn's image and reputation through trademark usage and ensure that the only entities using our trademarks for commercial purposes have the legal right to do so.
Profit from the sale of officially licensed merchandise and other licensing agreements, which funds various athletic and academic programs.
