Avatars

A social media avatar is the small image that is displayed next to your name. Some people also call them profile photos or logos.

We've created three styles. Feel free to choose which of the three you like best and swap them out periodically.

It is important for all departments to use the official UVic social media avatars. This will help create a cohesive visual identity that makes it easier for people to identify official UVic social media accounts.

Why is UVic not included in the graphic?

Avatars are always displayed next to your name (e.g. ). We recommend that you should always include "UVic" in your name. This means that the martlet and your department name will always be displayed next to the word "UVic" on Facebook and Twitter.  The UVic mark should not be used in your social media avatar.

How do I change my avatar?
