Explanation of Leiden University logo

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

Logo - dimensions

  • 100% normal size for A4
  • Fixed space: 189 x 105 pt (66.7 x 37 mm)
  • Height of seal: 63 pt (22.2 mm)
  • Minimum distance: 21 pt

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.
