PowerPoint Templates


UW–Madison PowerPoint templates are available for use by faculty, staff, and students. The templates are available in standard (4:3) and widescreen (16:9) formats in the download folders below and are compatible with Google Slides.

Each template has a version that incorporates UW brand fonts (Red Hat Text and Red Hat Display) and a version that uses a default system font (Arial). If you have the UW brand fonts installed on your computer, you should use the brand-fonts version. Make sure the computer that you will be presenting on also has the brand fonts installed. If you are sharing and editing the PowerPoint file with collaborators, it is important that they have the brand fonts installed. Visit our Typography page for how to download and install the free brand fonts.

The templates have been created to account for accessibility. As you edit a template, follow Microsoft’s guidance for making presentations accessible.

Note for Google Slides Users

The downloadable templates are in PowerPoint template (potx) format. To use them in Google Slides, be sure to select Open from the File menu instead of Import Slides.
