Logos of faculties

The logos of faculties are available through this portal. There is a range of formats to match the various applications of the logo.

Which colour?

The house style colour of the University of Groningen is red (see the colour palette for an exact description of this ‘RUG red’). Whenever possible, select this colour when using the logo. In some cases ‘RUG red’ cannot be used. Then the black logo may be used, for example in newspaper advertisements and pages printed on B/W laser printers. The white version is intended for use on a dark background.

Which colour system?

  • CMYK is used for full-colour printing
  • RGB is used for on-screen viewing applications (websites, PowerPoint presentations, MS Office files, etc.)

Which file type?

The file type to be selected depends on the specific use of the logo, which is available in a range of file types.

  • EPS: vector-based format intended for use in printing, lettering and other applications. Most staff members of the University of Groningen do not have access to the software required to open these files.
  • JPG: high-resolution bitmap files that can be used in screen-viewing applications and in MS Office files.


If you have any questions about the use of the logo or if you need it in a different file format or a different colour system, please contact the house style coordinator.
