See Visual identity


The University of Twente launched its new house style at the Opening of the Academic Year 2009-2010. Elements of the house style have been modified and extended on over the years and new initiatives were taken and added to the style as a whole. This means that the house style is constantly developing.

The visual identity of the University of Twente is a striking one. We threw all traditional rules overboard when creating it. The identity is made up of a whole range of forms, which can be used in a variety of ways. The building blocks from which the house style is composed offer plenty of flexibility for an organization that is as multifaceted as the University of Twente.

The trademark architecture defines how the University of Twente and all of its components and institutes present themselves.
