Athletics Logos

The official mark of Vanderbilt athletics is the Star V logo. There are sports-specific versions that are made available to members of the athletics department and club sports teams on campus.  The Star V logo is reserved for these athletic related programs only.  Vanderbilt organizations may use the Star V logo for university-related athletic events and activities. For club sports, the word “Club” must be included after the sport’s name for proper differentiation from intercollegiate athletics.

Please refer to the contacts page  for questions and assistance.

Secondary Marks

Vanderbilt’s spirit marks include the VU hand sign, the anchor graphic, Anchor Down, and Mr. Commodore.

Please note:

  • Spirit marks may be used by any Vanderbilt entity (schools, colleges, departments, divisions, etc.), but spirit marks may not be used in place of the appropriate signature for that unit.
  • Spirit marks may not be interlocked with other official Vanderbilt marks (i.e., Vanderbilt signature, Star V logo).
  • Spirit marks may not be modified except to create a kid-friendly version of the mark for special youth programming. Please submit these designs to the Brand Engagement and Governance office before use.
