Fonts

Primary fonts

The University’s typeface is Helvetica. As this is a system font for Mac but not for Windows, we also combine it, and sometimes replace it, with Arial. Please note of and respect the licensing agreement when using the Helvetica font package.

Use capitalisation only for single words or very short phrases or titles.

Ampersands (&) are only permitted in very long department names or occasionally in navigation where it improves readability.

If your website is not based in Ektron and you wish to use these fonts, please contact the web team.
