There are a range of document templates for staff to use in their day to day work. You can download these templates for use in Microsoft programmes.
It is important that all staff use these templates to ensure consistency between different areas of the University.
There are a range of templates available for staff to download and print locally. Please download the templates and edit them on your own computer, rather than as live Google documents within the drive.

- Microsoft Word headed paper template (for printing personalised documents locally)

- Microsoft Word internal memo template
Similar Word document templates for sub-brands are also available.

- Templates for digital signage using the on campus TV screens (also available for sub-brands). For instructions on how to get these displayed please see the signage section of the brand guidelines.
Microsoft files are supplied as template (.dotx or .potx) documents.
How to save a document as a template
Once you have downloaded these Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files you can save them for easy access later. The following instructions apply to a PC running Word 2013.
To do this click "File", "Save as", then select a folder and from the "Save file as" drop down list select "Word Template (*.dotx)". Click "Save".
You can now easily access these files when starting a new document: click "File", then "New", then "Custom" and select your desired template.

Important information about using these document templates
Documents published on our websites, like all other public sector websites, must meet accessibility standards. This is a legal requirement. Please ensure you've read our guidelines on how to ensure your documents are accessible to ensure that all documents published online adhere to accessibility regulations. Please note, this applies to designed PDFs (such as digital brochures and guides) as well as simple PDFs that use the University's document templates. In mamy cases, it may be better to publish the information you're proposing to create in PDF format on a web page.
Temporary posters displayed inside of our buildings are created for use for a limited time only and include information about:
- directions (to an event, for example)
- maintenance works
- instructions for students, visitors or staff (for example, if exams are taking place and there is a need for silence)
- opening hours
- forthcoming events (open days or one off talks, for example)
If you need to create a temporary sign you can download a template and change the text for your own purpose. The font used for signage is Arial. Any signage aimed at internal audiences only (this does not extend to materials for publicity purposes) should use these templates to create consistency around the University.
Temporary signage must be removed once it is no longer relevant to prevent clutter around the University. When creating your sign please include an expiry date, your name and telephone extension in the fields at the bottom of the sign.
