Add additional text on title page

TeX - LaTeX Asked by abhi120 on August 24, 2020

I want my title page to look like this

                                Title
                                Author
                                Date
          Coordinator1                          Coordinator2
                          Dept. of Physics
                            ABC College

If I put some text after maketitle, it gets shifted to next page. How can I add this to same page? Is there any way of doing this (except writing the whole title page on my own)?

Thanks in advance.

Here's a quick way by means of a date hijacking:

enter image description here

documentclass{book}
title{Title}
author{Author}
date{parbox{linewidth}{centering%
  todayendgrafbigskip
  Coordinator 1 hspace*{3cm} Coordinator 2endgrafmedskip
  Dept. of Physics endgraf
  ABC College}}
begin{document}
maketitle
end{document}

The reason for being able to do this is because the title macros (title, author and date) can contain anything, as long as it's not paragraphs. endgraf is okay though.

Of course, it is not that difficult to create your own, non-standard title page using other means (like the titlepage environment). For more on this, see Resources for title page and front matter design.

You can just redefine the maketitle to do whatever you want. In the example below feel free to tweak the spacing and font styles to change them to whatever you like:

documentclass{article}
makeatletter
renewcommand{maketitle}{
begin{center}

pagestyle{empty}
phantom{.}  %necessary to add space on top before the title
vspace{3cm}

{Huge bf @titlepar}
vspace{2.5cm}

{LARGE Your Name}\[1cm]

{[email protected]}

vspace{4.5cm}
{Large Advisor 1}hspace{2cm}{Large Advisor 2}\[2cm]
Dept. of Foo\
ABC College
%if you want something in the bottom of the page just use vfill before that.

end{center}
}makeatother


title{Your great title}  % you can actually insert these directly above if you prefer.
date{March 2019}

begin{document}
    maketitle
end{document}
