Why buy licensed?

Be purple. Be proud. Be principled.

Doing the right thing is just who we are as Huskies — and buying licensed UW merchandise is the best choice for you, for the University and for the world. When you buy licensed gear:

  • You’re investing in the University. A portion of every sale supports UW student scholarships, athletic programs and campus initiatives. (For example, if you buy a licensed T-shirt, about $2.25 from your purchase could come back to the University, based on the shirt’s wholesale value.) You’re helping create more opportunities for current and future Huskies when you wear your favorite licensed purple-and-gold gear.
  • You’re buying from socially responsible partners. Our licensees are required to respect workers’ rights and be transparent about their supply chain. Read more about our licensee code of conduct, which upholds standards for working conditions, health and safety, the environment, collective bargaining and human rights. Some of our licensees and their manufacturing partners go above and beyond these standards, from offering educational scholarships for workers’ children to creating financial empowerment programs. Since 2001, a UW advisory committee of faculty, students, staff and administrators holds licensees accountable and investigates violations of the code. So when you buy officially licensed gear, you can be confident your money will be used ethically.
  • You’re protecting the UW brand. The official versions of the block W logo, Husky head, “UW purple” and other elements of our brand represent both the University of Washington and our reputation. Buying licensed merchandise ensures that one of the UW’s most important assets — our public image — is used appropriately.

How do I know it’s licensed?

Look for the “Officially Licensed Collegiate Products” holographic seal on the item, label or hangtag.
