Press, Com­mu­nic­a­tions and Mar­ket­ing

The Department of "Press, Communications and Marketing" provides the public with information about Paderborn University in the areas of research, teaching, knowledge and technology transfer. It promotes the national and international visibility of the university, and is responsible for strategic communication. The employees publish press releases, articles and interviews, create flyers and brochures, run the university shop, are responsible for the corporate design and the official social media channels, and accompany and advise university researchers on all public relations issues. Our team is the first point of contact for journalists and the media.

Get in touch with us – we will be glad to help.

The Brand Portal for the new corporate design of Paderborn University is still under construction, so some content is not yet fully available. In particular, the editorial design templates for posters, flyers, brochures, annual reports and the like will not follow until autumn 2023. If necessary, please continue to use the old available templates and guidelines until then ("network structure" until July 2023). These are temporarily available here.

Please note that the templates are only accessible within the university network. Use VPN access when you are on the road or at home to access all information.  

If you have any questions, suggestions or support regarding the old and new corporate design, the Marketing Team will be happy to help. Simply send an email to:
