Macquarie University logo

Named after Lachlan Macquarie, the fifth Governor of New South Wales - a man noted for his humanitarianism and interest in education - the Macquarie Lighthouse has a long association with the University as part of the University Arms.

The lighthouse serves as a strong metaphor for the University's future ambitions. It is a symbol of the support, encouragement and reassurance that the University provides to students and staff, so they can venture into unknown territories of intellectual enquiry with great confidence and conviction.

Macquarie University's brandmark acknowledges both the Macquarie Lighthouse and the Sirius star; the guide-star and flagship of the First Fleet.

Logo versions

There are two versions of the Macquarie University logo: 'horizontal configuration' and 'vertical configuration'.

The horizontal configuration is the preferred version of the masterbrand and should be used wherever possible.

The international brandmark should be used in applications with significant exposure to international audiences.

See the Brand Identity Guidelines for use on coloured backgrounds.
