The University of New Hampshire Logo

The New UNH Logo

UNH is forging ahead in the ever-changing, ever-evolving landscape of higher education as a student-centered, research intensive, highly engaged, residential public university. Our new logo boldly distinguishes and represents New Hampshire’s flagship public research university.

The new logo, developed over fourteen months in partnership with respected design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, was selected by an advisory panel of students, faculty, alumni, and staff. It is designed for the University's three campuses in Durham, Manchester, and Concord for digital, print, and environmental branding, and complements our Athletics visual identity system.

  FAQs  

What is the UNH logo? The new UNH logo consists of the emblem (the "shield") and the wordmark (the words "University of New Hampshire"). The logo and the University seal comprise UNH's institutional visual identity system. The Wildcat images and mascots constitute UNH's Athletics visual identity system.
When can I start to use the new UNH logo? The new logo is available now for download in both web and print formats, from the "Downloads" section of this page.
When do I need to stop using the old logo? You may use your existing letterhead, business cards, brochures, uniforms, signage, etc., until June 30, 2014. By that time, we expect to have phased out printed and online appearances of the old logo. Other appearances of the logo, for example on nametags, uniforms, signs, etc., may be phased out immediately or as they are replaced on their usual product life cycle. This decision is at the discretion of management of each respective area of the university.
How do I get business cards and letterhead? Business cards and stationery with the new University graphic identity are available from UNH Printing Services. Please contact Kim Humphus or printing.services@unh.edu to place an order.
When does the logo have to be changed on my website? You have until June 30, 2014 to make the change. Check in with your web developer on making the change.
Do we need to purchase the font that is used in the word mark?No. The font, Glypha, is reserved for use in the UNH word mark exclusively. Font recommendations for other uses are published in the guidelines. Standards and guidelines for use within digital, print and environmental media, as well as a secondary color palette are also listed.

The official UNH logo sheet reflects this change. Please contact Bridget Finnegan with any questions about the seal.
