Brand Identity

Divisional hub with the most current brand assets.

The Penn brand is our primary brand identity.

The University Life Division does allow departments to have secondary brand identities when the target audience is the internal Penn community, however, all external communications must pull in the primary brand identity to align the department with the Penn brand.

Brand Assets

University Life brand assets can be accessed through Penn + Box folders. Most are open to the public, unless otherwise stated.

Supplier Choice and Merchandise

Licensed suppliers are the only companies allowed to produce Penn merchandise (apparel or other swag).

If the total purchasing order does not exceed 10k, use any supplier (contracted or approved) in the Penn system. If the total purchasing order does exceed 10k, use a contracted supplier, otherwise, the project must go out to bid.
