The KU logo and logotype use Trajan. Because the type elements are enhanced, they should never be reset. Trajan is all caps, and the font family consists of two weights, Regular and Bold.

The university's name should never appear in Trajan when it is not part of the signature.

 Trajan in PostScript Type 1 format may be purchased here.


Customized Features

The Trajan font was customized for the logo, so no part of the KU logo should be reset.
