The licensing process allows the University to control quality and benefit from the sale of branded and licensed merchandise. With authority granted by the University of Texas System, the UT Austin Office of Trademark Licensing provides trademark licensing services and oversees contracts with licensed merchandising agencies for academic institutions under the UT System.
To contribute toward the effort to protect and license trademarks of the University of Texas System and its institutions, only approved licensed vendors with Strategic Marketing Affiliates should be used for the purchasing of UTB branded items.
In case a purchase is to be made through a vendor that is not on the list, departments should encourage said vendor to apply for a license.
Contact the Purchasing Office at 956-882-6553 or see the resources section for more information.
