Use of the logo by students, scholarship holders and doctoral candidates who are not employed by the University.
If students or doctoral candidates wish as part of their theses to write to third parties, in particular companies, with a request for participation in a study, etc., they can use the University letterhead with the logo. The prerequisite is that the supervisor agrees and signs the letter jointly with the student.
The logo can be used on posters, flyers or presentations in the context of a degree course or doctoral programme. The same applies to presentations that show research findings which are used at conferences or congresses. The prerequisite is the consent of the supervisor or the lecturer responsible.
It is permitted to use the logo on doctoral dissertations and post-doctoral habilitation theses.
It is not permitted to use the logo on Bachelor or Master theses.
Note: If a student does use the logo on their final thesis, this is not a reason to downgrade or not to mark their thesis. However, it should be made clear that the dissemination of work which includes the logo is not allowed.
The use of the University logo by any person or legal entity outside the University
The use of the University logo requires written permission and is only possible in cases in which there is a sufficient connection to Bielefeld University. Please contact the Head of the Communication and Marketing Department.
Photos from the image bank of Bielefeld University may only be used with the consent of Bielefeld University. If you use an image, you must credit the creator of the image where applicable and Bielefeld University.

We are happy to provide the handbook and corresponding files for external agencies and service providers that have been commissioned by university members to design media using the corporate design of Bielefeld University. Please contact the Communication Design and Graphics department for an appointment before implementing your project.
Cooperation programmes and networks, affiliated associations and institutions, students and university groups have no web presence at uni-bielefeld.de, but use independent websites.
Whether, in exceptional cases, a website can be implemented within the framework of the university webpages is to be clarified on a case by case basis.
Please contact the web editorial office in the Department of Communication.
