McGill's Visual Identity

McGill University’s name and the visual symbols and trademarks associated with the University are well recognized around the world. They are a source of both pride and identification, and their correct and consistent use help protect and strengthen McGill’s global reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and research, and communicates the idea of the University as an institution rather than a collection of individual parts.

The resources found on these pages were developed by the Office of Communications and External Relations, in conjunction with collaborators across the University, to assist McGill faculty and staff in using the various elements of the University’s visual identity properly and consistently.

We understand that needs are diverse and ever-changing and encourage you to logo.communications [at] mcgill.ca (contact us) with any questions or particular requirements you may have.

The visual identity standards outlined in this guide will assist McGill faculty and staff in using the various elements of the University’s visual identity correctly and consistently.

McGill’s trademark policy sets out the general principles, terms, conditions and procedures governing the use of McGill’s name, logo and other trademarks.
 

McGill faculty and staff can download the McGill logo or submit a request for a custom social media avatar. Anyone else wishing to use the University’s logo can download the permission form.
