College Colors & Nicknames

This section is the result of over 25 years of research.  That being said, the data still needs quite a bit of updating.  Each section contains college and university information, including the official school colors and nicknames.

"Institutional Colors" indicates the colors that are true for the institution/school itself.  "Athletic Colors" are color sets that apply to only the athletic programs, while "Official Colors" indicate colors that are true for the entire school - institutional and athletics.

If anyone has any corrections, additions, comments, concerns, etc., please send me an email at info@colorwerx.us.

The color swatches accessible by these team color listings represent the colors in the sRGB color space, on coated paper, as defined by the latest PANTONE formula guides.  The vast majority of these colors utilize the Pantone libraries (PANTONE Plus, PANTONE Goe), but a select few are representative of a custom color mix, or a conversion from CIE-Lab to RGB, or an entirely different color library (TOYO, RAL, Tru-Match, etc.).

Official color descriptions are used whenever possible; however, some entries listed here may be estimates.  Estimated color values are indicated by an asterisk (*) in the lower-right-hand corner of the color swatch.  Any help in obtaining these official colors and/or descriptions would be greatly appreciated.  If you have any additions, corrections, etc., please contact me at donovan@colorwerx.us.
