Much like people (and, well, a lot of other things), type has personality and character. Each font has a certain appeal and, thus, comes off a certain way. Those of the more calligraphic variety—the pretty ones with all the swirls and loops and curved lines—generally make me think of effortless and perfectly restrained creativity. Those under the block letters category make me think of enthusiasm, energy, and larger-than-life personalities. Which is, perhaps, why they are very fitting in the collegiate realm.
To sort of back that statement up, here we have this collection of the 9+ best college fonts! These Free Fonts come in TTF and OTF formats and may be free for personal use, free for commercial use, or licensed for personal and commercial use.

College Fonts 4 Ways
Going off to college typically means a whole different kind of independence, which explains why most, if not all, students attending are of insanely high spirits. And the typeface that perfectly projects that level of energy can only be the bold, imposing, loud college and Varsity Fonts. In this collection, you can see a lot of variations of them, such as:
- Bold and Outlined – As if the all capitals and and boldface setting wasn’t enough, “Free College Font,” “Universal College Font,” “College Heavy Outline Font,” and “Collegiate Normal Font,” go the extra mile and extra emphasis by outlining each block letter.
- Basic Block – On the other hand, “College Bold Font,” “College Alphabet Font,” “College Block Font,” and “College Black Font,” are your typical college fonts—the staples, if you will.
- Rounded Edges – In “College Athletico Grunge Font,” you get a kind of spin-off of the previous college font. You still have the signature boldness/weight, but instead of the blunt and sharp corners, you have their smoother and more rounded versions.
- Calculator Font – “College Number Font” is a specialty college font. Since the typeface looks like something you see on a calculator, this would look good on math department bulletins and displays.
