UNH Emblem

The UNH emblem consists of a bold blue shield with the letters "NH" placed within it. Always use the original and approved art; never alter any aspect of it or attempt to redraw or recreate it.

The UNH emblem requires the use of the ™ symbol to be used in associated with the trademark. The TM mark should be placed below the emblem aligning with the bottom and with the body of the "T" aligning with the outer edge of the "H."

An alternate version of the logo with a white outline around the emblem is to be used when the logo appears on a colored background that does not allow adequate contrast with the blue logo. Refer to the section on color for additional specifications.

Clear Space: To ensure its integrity and visibility, the UNH emblem should be kept clear of competing text, images, and graphics. It must be surrounded on all sides by an adequate clear space, equal in size to the height of the "NH" above and on each side of the emblem and half of that same height below the emblem.

Rather, request a logo set from UNH Communications and Public Affairs.

The University Seal

The University seal (also referred to as the Presidential seal) commemorates three landmark years in our history. At the bottom of the seal, the year 1866 marks our founding as New Hampshire’s College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in Hanover. The year 1893 marks the college’s move to Benjamin Thompson’s farm in Durham. Finally, the year 1923 commemorates the transformation of the college into the University of New Hampshire.

Proper use of the seal – The seal is for use on diplomas and other designated official University documents only. As with the logo and wordmark, the University seal may not be altered in any way. The University seal may only be used with prior approval from Communications and Public Affairs who can be reached at (603) 862-6000.
