The Leiden University logo consists of:
- An unvarying combination of the image mark (the seal) and the word mark ‘Universiteit Leiden’ as a graphic (rather than a font).
- The normal colour of the logo is LEI-blue.
Addition of ‘The Netherlands’
For communications in English, the logo is used with the addition of ‘The Netherlands’.
Logo on a background
Please note: On a background (light or dark), the seal remains the same. On a dark background, the word mark ‘Universiteit Leiden’ is always in white (see example). If the product has a LEI-blue background (bag, sweater, pen etc, ) a variant of the logo in a single colour (white) is available.
If you have any questions or would like advice on the use of logos, please contact us by email.

The University logo is supplied in one size. If a different size is required, linear enlargement or reduction can be applied to the appropriate file format. Each subsequent size can be obtained by enlarging the logo to 125% or reducing it to 80%. Enlargement and reduction works well with PDF files. However, PNG files are not particularly suitable for enlargement.
