The first RSU Logo was created with the RSU's establishment in December of 2020. This logo was used until February 16th.
On February 16th 2021, a new logo with a higher resolution and updated size and proportions was released. This logo also replaced the standard flat colour of the previous logo with a blue gradient. With this new logo was also an alternative inverted logo, which included a white background and a blue logo item. Despite the official use of the new logo, the logo was rarely used.
In October of 2021, the gradient logo was officially replaced with an updated logo, which featured the sole design difference of reverting the change of incorporating gradients into the logo. The inverted white and blue logo was kept for miscellaneous purposes.
In February 2023, the union logo was given further authenticity with the passing of by-law 2023-02, which in addition to reinforcing the use of the current logo, introduced the union motto, colour palette, and formal executive logo.
During the first annual union convention in April 2021, the union temporarily adopted a new logo, which featured the previous classic flat logo, with the addition of bubbles, for the purpose of the convention. This also included promotional material which featured a similar aesthetic.
The aesthetic was used for a period of time after, in use in the union's general social media posts and branding, as well as using the convention logo as representation of the union's leadership.
In February 2023, a by-law was passed which introduced a formal arms-style logo to the union. This logo is only permitted for use by the union's executive branch, for the purpose of seals, and when explicit permission is granted by the union leadership. The union reserves the right to revoke permission to use the logo, as per the by-law.
In February of 2021, the union considered for a short period of time, the implementation of committee-specific logos. The idea was ultimately scrapped in favour of consistency throughout the union.

Between December 2020 and February 2021, the RSU's main branding consisted of hues #1063FF and #FFFFFF being used, amongst several others contrasting and complimenting hues.
The branding guidelines were updated in February 2021, to replace the old hue of blue with #0D65FA.
The colour palette was made official in February 2023 by a by-law.
In July of 2021, the RSU introduced committee-specific branding colours. Committee-specific colours were abolished in October 2021, along with committees.
Upon the creation of the union's first constitution in December 2020, the union adopted the official motto, "Discipuli enim meliorem cras", which roughly translated to "A better tomorrow for students".
The union removed the motto with the second revision constitution in March 2022.
The motto was re-established as "Discipuli pro crastinum melium", a corrected version of the initial motto, with the passing of a by-law in February 2023.
