Many emblems identify Thomas University including, but not limited to, its name, the University logo and the University athletic team symbols. All Thomas University’s symbols, brand name, graphics and logos are trademarks, wordmarks and/or service marks of the University, certain ones registered in the State, with the Federal registry, Customs and Internationally. The University therefore has certain legal rights regarding their use.
The name “Thomas University” is to appear on all official documents of the University. Those include stationery, envelopes, business cards, identification cards, business forms, legal contracts, and any other media used in an official university capacity. Abbreviations or contractions of the name such as “TU” or “Thomas U” are not acceptable substitutes for use on official documents, but may be used as appropriate on other documents, subject to the approval of the Director of Marketing.

Where permission is necessary, the use of any registered University symbol or logo shall be by written agreement between the University and the user.
