The WashU Bears have a long and proud tradition, and our athletics logos embody that spirit and align with overall university visual branding.


We have simplified and reduced the number of approved athletics logos in order to provide clarity while still offering marks to suit many different needs. Only the three logo marks available here are approved for use in WashU Athletics communications or merchandise.

Each set below includes a full-color, reverse, one-color positive and one-color reverse logo as a PNG and EPS file. Please refer to the Communications Resource when using the logos below.

Have a quick question about logo files? Please refer to the “About your logo files” (.pdf) document.

New logos include updated WashU color standards. All new applications of athletics logos should use the updated logo files below.

This Friendly Bear logo was created specifically for use on children’s merchandise or communications for child-friendly university activities or events. It should not be used in any other application.
