Symbol of the University
Concept of the symbol
The basic concept of the symbol concerns “trimming.”
The symbol, consisting of a combination of four different rectangles, signifies the integration of four different universities. At the same time, the outline of the group of rectangles trims the point where the horizontal and vertical lines that divide the different rectangles cross with each other. This means that everything that happens in the capital city of Tokyo, where diverse information and people intersect, is trimmed in accordance with a new and innovative viewpoint. The symbol signifies the way the Tokyo Metropolitan University regards the capital city of Tokyo as material for its education and research
Faculty members and groups of students defined in the General Rule are permitted to use the symbol in their activities, provided they follow the manual. The use of the symbol and other materials in any manners other than illustrated in the manual requires the permission from the University.
*Students may not use the symbol for personal use.
With consideration to its specific use, the symbol may be used in either of two different forms:
1. Symbol Mark
This is a more static form and is usually used to officially symbolize the University overall.
2. Sub-Symbol Mark
Sub-symbol mark, please use the goods, and the like.
