    You will find a large number of fonts here: tug.org/FontCatalogue/blackletterfonts.html – bmv Feb 3 at 20:45

    Welcome to TeX.SE! If you want this exact font, then you can buy it from the Monotype website... And then either convert the font files to make them useable in LaTeX (which you maybe use, you didn't specify) or if you're using XeTeX or LuaLaTeX you can load it directly if it's on your system. Or you look for a font package you like here: tug.org/FontCatalogue/blackletterfonts.html – TivV Feb 3 at 20:46
  • Is this a duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/q/25249/172164 ? – TivV Feb 3 at 20:48
  • I an using latex. Downloading a font is not a problem actual problem is how to install that font. Guide simply how to install. – Shahid Rafiq Feb 3 at 20:49

    @Peter Wilson .....dear i have this font on my Microsoft word – Shahid Rafiq Feb 7 at 2:37

The OP has indicated in comments that Microsoft Office is installed, the desired Old English font is named Old English Text MT and it is included with Microsoft Office.

% Compile using XeLaTeX
% Name the file university.tex % for example
\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Old English Text MT}
\begin{document}
\fontsize{24pt}{28.8pt}\selectfont This is the name of university
\end{document}

This will produce a cropped pdf which you can include using \includegraphics. The font size is 24pt, which you can set to any reasonable value you like. If the graphicx package is loaded, the pdf image can be inserted by \includegraphics{university}

  • ...i m receiving error. of undefined control sequence. when itried to compile in XeLatex. I am unable to run other like XeLatex etc. kindly guide me just in Latex because i have a very short time for my thesis – Shahid Rafiq Feb 8 at 0:51
  • @ShahidRafiq -- This suggestion, to create a small pdf file containing only the name of the university, using XeTeX, and then including it as a graphic, is the quickest possible solution, since trying to use this font with just basic pdflatex would require repackaging the font. That would take quite a bit of time, as well as special expertise. – barbara beeton Feb 8 at 2:48
  • @ShahidRafiq the standalone file above does work, maybe you used XeTeX not XeLaTeX to compile. What was the undefined control sequence? Please try again. From your sample file below, it seems you want an eps image, not a pdf image. To convert a pdf image to eps use the command line: pdftops -eps filename.pdf – corporal Feb 8 at 3:07

    Right now i think the quickest end to this ordeal is to send shahid a cropped pdf via mail. :-\ – Johannes_B Feb 8 at 5:00

In PDFTeX

My recommendation is to use a modern engine and Unicode when you can, and legacy fonts when you have to. (Although not everyone agrees.) In this case, you say you have to.

Pick a blackletter font you like from the LaTeX Font Catalogue, and that’s available from CTAN in Type 1 format.

For example, Gotik should work. If your TeX Live installation doesn’t come with it, install the gothic package with tlmgr.

Then, you can follow the instructions on the page to activate it:

\usepackage{yfonts}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

and in the document:

{\gothfamily Some University Somewhere}

You could also add a command to the preamble:

\DeclareTextFontCommand{\textgoth}{\gothfamily}

which would let you write

\textgoth{Some University Somewhere}

Example

Based on the first page of your source, with somewhat-modernized LaTeX:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,openany]{report}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} % The default since 2018
\usepackage{tgpagella, newpxmath} % A successor to mathpazo
\usepackage{yfonts} % For gothic

\DeclareTextFontCommand{\textgoth}{\gothfamily}

\begin{document}

  \begin{titlepage}
    \centering
    {\Huge\bfseries\scshape Topic of Thesis}\\
    {\bfseries\Large By ......}\\
    {\bfseries Session year--year}\\% en dash!
    {\bfseries\Large Department of Subject}\\
    {\bfseries\Large\gothfamily Some University Somewhere}\\
    {\bfseries\Large City, Country}
  \end{titlepage}

\end{document}

Gothik/Pagella sample

In LuaLaTeX or XeLaTeX

You can load this font with \newfontface like in this answer, replacing the name of the font with the one you need. For example:

\usepackage{fontspec}
\newfontface\almamater{Old English MT}

You might want to check out which font features the font supports with otfinfo. For example, if it supports DFLT ligatures, you can add the option [Ligatures = Common].

Then you can write

{\almamater Some University}

You can also define

\DeclareTextFontCommand{\textalmamater}{\almamater}

to be able to write

\textalmamater{Some University}

I'm posting another answer because it's quite different to the other answers.

Currently other answers to this question suggest using XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX to get the desired Old English font, or pdfLaTeX to use a substitute font. This answer suggest two methods which rely on Microsoft Word to generate a suitable pdf, and then use standard packages or tools to obtain the desired result.

Method 1: Use Microsoft Word to create the single title page with the desired fonts, layout and spacing. Then use the save as Adobe PDF option from Word. Include the pdf using the pdfpages package using the command \includepdf{filename}

Method 2: If the page needs to be included as an eps graphic, then use Microsoft Word to create a custom sized page the same area as the thesis main file type area: width 5.8in and height 8.5 in. Use the desired fonts to create the title page. Then use the save as Adobe PDF option from word. Now use the command line: pdftops -eps filename.pdf Finally include the title page using \noindent\includegraphics{filename}

Some extra info for using Microsoft Word to (approximately) match the LaTeX font sizes, source The Not So Short Introduction to LaTeX2e

The thesis is using 12pt option, the matching fontsizes are as follows.

\normalsize 12pt
\large 14pt
\Large 17pt
\LARGE 20pt
\huge25pt
\Huge 25pt
