Coat of arms

The university’s coat of arms (sometimes called the crest) is restricted to limited formal use.

The coat of arms is limited to specific formal uses: degree and certificate parchments, and their frames and folders; a special line of high-end commemorative gifts from the SFU Bookstore; and formal communications from the president, senate, chancellor and board of governors. No other version of the coat of arms may be used. The coat of arms and crest colours are protected by copyright.

Use of the coat of arms must always be approved by SFU’s Communications & Marketing and VP Legal Affairs. Questions should be directed to
