Complementary colours

A set of complementary colours is available for limited use in instances where our primary brand colours on their own do not provide enough variation to distinguish our visual elements. Note that there are variances between print and web colours.

Text colour

Use dark grey text treatments instead of solid black. This does not replace a brand colour in solid areas.

Faculty and school colours

Each faculty as well as the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies has its own distinct branded colour used alongside our primary brand colours. This helps to differentiate between each area and give each a unique identity.

All of the university’s brand colours are compliant with The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) colour contrast requirements. In the case of additional accessibility consideration, text in these colours may not meet the contrast requirements.
