Radboud University's logo consists of a word mark ('Radboud Universiteit') and a figurative mark (the coat of arms). The coat of arms has existed since the university was founded in 1923. We are currently using a modernised variant.

Het logo van de Radboud Universiteit


  • The logo may not be modified in any way in terms of shape, colour and text.
  • The Radboud University logo is the logo of all parts of the university. Do not use any other logo in communications. 
  • When communicating with an external party, put the university's logo alongside the other logos.
  • In principle, the crest and wordmark should not be used separately or stacked together. Contact communicatie [at] ru.nl (communicatie[at]ru[dot]nl) if this is not possible.
  • The coat of arms and the wordmark have a fixed relationship to each other.

An own logo

To establish a well-known and strong brand worldwide, it is very important to present Radboud University as a uniform, recognisable brand. This is why we always and only use the Radboud University logo in all our communications. This way, our target groups recognise our communication and we strengthen the Radboud brand. Parts of the university that use the logo also benefit from the strength of the Radboud brand. It is therefore - with exceptions - neither permitted nor recommended to use own logos.

Is it nevertheless necessary to use your own logo? If so, please contact communicatie [at] ru.nl (communicatie[at]ru[dot]nl) first.
