At London Metropolitan University we are proud of the strong legacy of the visual identities we have used in the past, as well as those logos associated with our predecessor institutions. Our history dates back to 1848 and the establishment of the Metropolitan Evening Classes for Young Men.
To find out more about legacy institutions and how London Metropolitan University came to be read about the history of the University.
Below, you'll find a catalogue of logos that have been associated with past London Met campaigns and predecessor institutions. These aren't used on our branded materials today, but they served a key role in the development of the organisation and we are pleased to present them here.
Staff members who need to use these graphics (for example, in publications for alumni) and who have requested and been granted access can click on the links to access a folder where the logo files can be downloaded.
