The official University typefaces are Bembo Std. and ITC Franklin Gothic, and these are suggested for use on University publications. Typefaces are licensed and are widely available for purchase. In the event that a unit does not have access to these fonts, other suggested fonts are Garamond and Arial.

The University’s standard sans-serif and serif fonts are:

1. Bembo Std.
2. ITC Franklin Gothic


These fonts are not generally available on computers, and are not considered safe for the web. In place of Bembo and Franklin Gothic, use Georgia and Verdana respectively. Use the following font families to style text in all web communications:

1. Font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
2. Font-family: Georgia, ‘Times New Roman’, serif;


Standard size:

  • Fonts are sized in terms of ems

Baseline font size of 13px (13px = 1.0em), represented either as a percentage for child fonts, or as ems.
