Do you know KOMA-Scrip?  It has good support for title pages.  Check
section 3.7 in the KOMA-Script manual.  If it has everything you need just
that.

If your university provides a latex template, and one department there
certainty will, why not use that?  Just port the university's class or
recommend preamble to Org via org-latex-classes,

Alternatively, it's not hard roll you own title-page.tex.  An example is
below.
