Meaning and History

Universidad Rey Juan Carlos logo

URJC was founded in 1996. As its motto, the school chose the original phrase “Non nova, sed nove,” which translates from Spanish as “The old way in a new manner,” meaning a drive for innovation while respecting the past. Just 15 years later, King Juan Carlos University received the prestigious international title Campus of International Excellence “Energía Inteligencia.”

At URJC, you can pursue more than 40 specialties under the Bologna system, six of them in English, including serious scientific programs in the fields of medicine and experimental technologies.

What is URJC?

URJC – Universidad Rey Juan Carlos is a Spanish educational institution named after the king. The university offers education in various fields, including economics, engineering, medicine, and the humanities. It comprises four campuses and numerous research centers and has existed since 1996.

The first logo was created in 1996 and featured the acronym URJC in black capital letters on a white background. Above the first letter, “U,” is a stylized royal red crown in the form of a band and three dots.

Font and Colors

URJC Emblem

In 2016, when the University celebrated its 20th anniversary, it was decided for one year to make a special logo. A competition was announced among teachers and students of the educational institution. This option won: on a black background on the left is a white letter U with a red crown on top. Below it is the number 20 and the word “aniversario,” which in Spanish means “anniversary.” On the right is the full name Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, written in white in two lines. This solemn logo has been used throughout the year as an official sign-in print and online publications.

At the end of 2016, it was decided to leave the logo design unchanged, but to facilitate the color scheme, as well as remove the anniversary theme. Black was first replaced by gray but soon settled on a red background and white color letters and icons. The red crown began to be depicted in the form of red rings in a white frame. All three options are considered equivalent and are now used on an equal footing.

URJC Symbol

The Gill Sans font is used for the letter U, and Helvetica for the words in the title.

A stylized short emblem was also developed – a black letter U on a white plate, two red dots above it, and a red rectangle in a vertical position on top, symbolizing movement into the future.

Both the full and the abbreviated emblems fully correspond to the values and policies of the university. The university combines the high standards of a royal educational institution, a modern education system, and advanced scientific research.
