The logo of the University of Groningen

The logo of the University of Groningen has several versions. The preferred version is the horizontal logo in the colour red. If this version cannot be used or is not desirable, the vertical version in black or white may be used. In communications sent to international contacts or audiences, the English version of the logo must be used.

The corporate logo can be supplemented by no more than two additional brand elements separated by slashes. This is referred to as the logo banner. To promote the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen/University of Groningen brand, subdivisions of the University are not allowed to use logos of their own.

To project the correct corporate image, it is essential that the logo be used correctly. This includes:

  • in principle using the logo always at the top left;
  • using the logo in its entirety;
  • providing sufficient space around the logo.

Social Media

As the official logo is not suitable to be used in social media, the University has commissioned a special icon. This icon must be used for all official social media and apps with the University or an organizational unit of the University as sender. There are two versions available for RUG-apps:

  • A white version for current students, faculties and degree programmes.
  • A red version for Corporate departments and services



The icons can be found in the logo database . Please read the University of Groningen guidelines concerning the use of social media.
