Who can help me with my project?

I don't have the typefaces. What can I do?

If you are creating a piece using our self-service marketing templates, the fonts are embedded into the templates; you do not need to purchase or install them.

If you are creating a piece without using one of the above methods, you will need to purchase the fonts from a site such as or The approved University fonts are listed in the brand guidelines. You can purchase an entire font family or a single typeface (bold, italic, Roman, etc.) depending on your needs.
