The official colours

Official visual identity palette

Colour choice plays an important role in the brand image of the University. Thus, strict management and use of this palette helps establish the identity. All colour variations have been drawn from the Pantone© colour chart. The official palette coulours must not be replaced by or modified with any other colour.

The primary palette is composed of two colours: the uOttawa grey and the uOttawa garnet, both colours of historical significance for the University. Some variation is possible to accommodate different printing methods, but always remaining consistent with the University of Ottawa identity. Pantone© colours followed by a "C" are for printing on coated paper and those followed by a "U" for printing on uncoated paper.
