# How to set title graphic on top of the title page for beamer

I want to set the name of university and its logo on top of title page (above the all titles). But positioning by using \vspace

  \titlegraphic{\includegraphics[width=2cm]{GerbKievUniversity}\hspace*  {0cm}\vspace*{5cm}}


doesn't make anything.

How to do that?

You can locally redefine the background template to include the information; something along these lines (I used two side-by-side \parboxes for the logo and the name of the University):

\documentclass{beamer}

\title{The Title}
\subtitle{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\date{\today}
\titlegraphic{}

\begin{document}

{
\setbeamertemplate{background}{%
\raisebox{-1cm}{%
\parbox[c]{3cm}{\centering%
\includegraphics[width=2cm]{example-image-a}%
}%
\parbox[c]{\dimexpr\paperwidth-3cm\relax}{\centering%
{\Large The Name of the University}%
}%
}%
}
\begin{frame}
\maketitle
\end{frame}
}

\end{document}


The resulting title page:

## Remarks

• Notice that the pair of braces surrounding the whole construct are required to keep the redefinition of the template local.

• Feel free to change the settings according to your needs; in particular, depending on the theme used, you might need to change the value used in the \raisebox.

• This is very useful to quick add two logos on top just playing with parbox and basic alignment and spacing. – Alejandro Sazo Apr 2 '16 at 0:05
