University Marks

The purpose of Stockton’s logo is to create a clear, memorable brand identity for the University. The tree icon and University wordmark highlight Stockton’s history, progress, transformation and growth.

Stockton’s logo is composed of two parts: The Stockton tree icon and official University wordmark. The tree icon includes a distinctive arch and is a contemporary adaptation from the original tree logo represented in the University seal. The arch offers a sense of motion, connecting Stockton’s past with the University’s bold focus on the future.

Primary Logo


Official Stockton Logo


Stockton’s primary logo is represented in a horizontal layout and should be used rather than the stacked version when appropriate. Use of the stacked version needs approval from University Relations & Marketing.

The Stockton logo is used on communication including University publications, digital and printed marketing materials, presentations, websites, merchandise and signage.

  • The Stockton logo is treated as artwork, not as typography. The logo should not be modified in any way.
  • Use approved, unaltered versions of the Stockton logo.
  • The logo should always appear in black or alternately white on dark backgrounds. Exceptions need approval from University Relations & Marketing.
  • The logo cannot be recreated or manipulated in any way.
  • The logo is not a replacement for the University Seal.
  • The logo cannot be combined with the University Seal as a singular graphic.
  • The logo should not be altered except to enlarge or reduce proportionately.

Stockton University is celebrating 50 years of teaching from fall 2021 through summer 2022.

The Stockton 50th logo may only be shown in black, white, gold (pms 104). Specifications for black, white and gold (pms 104) can be found here. The preferred background colors for a white “drop-out” 50th logo are black only.

When using one of the approved 50 year anniversary logos with photography it is important to remember how legible the logo is in conjunction with the photo. The correct logo should be used based on the color palette of the photo as well. Placement of the correct logo is crucial so the logo doesn’t get lost visually.

The Stockton “Distinctive” S is a spirit symbol designed for limited use to identify Stockton’s image in a creative and bold manner.

The “Distinctive” S is an alternate method of identifying Stockton graphically, featuring the school’s mascot, the osprey. It is less formal than the Stockton seal and wordmarks but offers an opportunity to build the University’s brand equity in a casual manner.

The “Distinctive” S should be used as a piece of art in informal or casual communication and should not be used as a substitute for, or compete with, Stockton’s seal or wordmarks. It should not be used as typography, such as a letter in a word.

The “Distinctive” S may be used by University departments and recognized student organizations with permission from the Office of University Relations & Marketing.

The Office of University Relations & Marketing will work with your department to determine the proper and best usage of the “Distinctive” S.

The “Distinctive” S must not be reduced to less than 3/4 of an inch in width because they become illegible. When resizing the “Distinctive” S, resize proportionately. Ensure visibility of the “Distinctive” S by leaving an appropriate amount of space around the image.
