Typography

Adobe Caslon is the official typeface for Georgetown University. The Caslon typeface dates back to the 18th century. It was used in the founding documents of our country and John Carroll’s proposal to establish the university. It remains the official font of Georgetown University. However, if you do not have access to Adobe Caslon, Times or Georgia are acceptable alternatives.

If you would like to request a license to download and install the Adobe Caslon typeface onto your computer, please use the typeface license request form.

The secondary typeface, Neue Helvetica, may be used with Adobe Caslon to add more visual interest. Please note, Neue Helvetica should not be substituted for Adobe Caslon as the dominant typeface.
