Licensing Questions & Tips
Please fill out the form below for general inquiries.
The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC)
General Information – CLC is the nation’s leading collegiate trademark licensing and marketing company, assisting collegiate institutions in protecting, managing and developing their brands.
Prospective Licensee Information – Obtaining a license through CLC is a process that will require a great deal of thought, research and commitment. With more than 300+ companies already licensed to produce a wide range of products, only those companies that can exhibit a commitment to the collegiate market, have established production and distribution capabilities, and/or offer a new or unique product will be granted the opportunity to obtain a license.
Find UCF Licensees – Search for licensees currently authorized to produce merchandise bearing University of Central Florida marks.
Employees are encouraged to use their unit identifiers on all promotional items for their departments. If a non-athletic department seeks to use Knightro in any of their promotional items, they must obtain approval through University Licensing. UCF Departments may request a unit identifier from UCF Marketing’s website at https://www.ucf.edu/brand/uil-search/.
The seal is used at formal, university wide academic functions. Use is restricted to the UCF Board of Trustees, Office of the President, Office of the Provost, and Office of the General Counsel.
Department Submission Form
This form is intended for use by departments, schools, colleges, dsos and entities related to UCF.
While student organizations are an important part of the college experience, they are not considered to be a sponsored entity of UCF. Therefore, Registered Student Organizations are not authorized to use University trademarks or logos (including the Pegasus and UCF Wordmark). Additionally, RSOs cannot use “UCF” or “University of Central Florida” before the organization name, indicating sponsorship by the University. Organizations may only use them following the organization name, preceded by “at,” as in “Organization Name at UCF,” which only indicates where the organization is based.
Student Sports Clubs
Registered Student Organizations that are classified as Sports Clubs may only use the “Knighthead” logo. The UCF stacked logo should NOT be used. Sports Clubs may only use “UCF” or “University of Central Florida” preceded by “at” as in “Sports Club at UCF.”
Approval of University trademarks or logos must be secured through University Licensing prior to usage. Please submit your proposed design using the Student Submission Form. All RSOs must follow standards with regards to color, size, use, and other characteristics as specified by University Marketing or Intercollegiate Athletics.
Some RSOs may want to create a logo for their group. RSOs may not alter or use any part of a University or Intercollegiate Athletics trademarks. Even if the group does not use a University or Intercollegiate Athletics trademark or logo in its organizational logo, the group still may need approval if using the word “Knights”.
Student organizations who are in violation of these rules may receive “Cease and Desist” orders from the University’s General Counsel office, may be subject to student conduct sanctions, and may lose their registration status with OSI.
