Radboud University's logo consists of a word mark ('Radboud University') 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.

There is a Dutch- and an English-language logo available. The English-language logo is used in communication that is non-Dutch or bilingual.

  • The logo may not be modified in any way in terms of shape, colour and text.
  • Use the logo in all communications from the university, even when Radboud University communicates with an external party. Then put the logo alongside the other logos.
  • In principle, the coat of arms and wordmark should not be used separately. Contact communicatie [at] ru.nl if this is not possible.
  • The coat of arms and the wordmark have a fixed relationship to each other.
  • Preferably place the logo in your layout with the coat of arms on the centre line.


The following variants of the logo exist for special occasions or specific target groups.

Logo with lustrum badge

In 2023, Radboud University will celebrate its 100th anniversary. To mark this anniversary, a lustrum badge has been developed. You can use it in 2023 on communications related to the lustrum or when it is relevant to refer to the 100th anniversary.

The lustrum badge can also be used in combination with the lustrum logo. This is done in a fixed form. There is no English-language version of this logo. Read more about the use of the logo with lustrum badge on this page.

The logo with lustrum badge is available in full-colour or in white, depending on the background.

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 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 first.
