How can I promote my event?

The School events calendar is run through Google Calendar.

If you have a School-related event to promote then please email the School Web Editor including the following details:

  • Event title
  • Date, time and venue
  • Event details
  • Who to contact for more info
  • Subject Area (if none is specified it will be added as a School-wide event)

Thanks to the Google Calendar functionality, School events automatically appear on the College of Arts'google calendar too, so there's no need to contact them separately.

University Resources

Brand toolkit

The University of Glasgow brand identity has five component parts. Combined they make us instantly recognisable and communicate who we are:

  • Our marque
  • Our colour palette
  • Our photographic approach
  • Our typefaces
  • Our tone of voice

There are a limited number of stands available for use and although there is no hire charge, we would advise booking them as soon as you are aware of the date.

Photographic Unit: poster printing, arranging photography

All poster printing is done using ‘true’ photographic materials and not laser or inkjet. Images printed using photographic materials look better and last a lot longer. They offer posters from A3 and up to A0 poster size. The poster service is well established and is an excellent choice when you really want to impress at a conference or event.

Print Unit

The Print Unit provides printing services to all University departments, its wider partners, staff, students and external customers.

Where to find images

The Communications Office has a password-protected marketing communications photo library covering a wide range of subjects, from buildings to student life.

If you have marketing responsibilities, please contact: communications@glasgow.ac.uk for more details.

Using design agencies

The University, through a design framework tender exercise, has appointed a roster of approved suppliers for design services.
