    As long as they refer to the same seal and the same university, none that I can see.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    There is no context here, but they appear to be correct. The first one might need a definite article before Seal.

    1. Seal of the University
    2. The University seal
    3. Official Seal of the University
    I think "Seal" should be capitalized in #2. Other than that 1 and 2 are correct. If you are labeling the document, I don't think you need the word "Official".

    Merged duplicate threads.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
