The official logotype of Washington University in St. Louis consists of a three-color heraldic shield device and a formal wordmark in black. Three official configurations have been created for units to allow for flexibility in placing the logo on a wide variety of communications.

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.

Although the changes are subtle, there have been some important modifications made to official university logos, including enhancements to the balance and alignment of the shield and improved consistency of the letterforms of the typography. New logos also include updated WashU color standards. All new applications of university logos should use updated logo files.

Logos are available for additional university units.
