This problem is exactly what is stated in the title. Removing or changing a page number is easy in LaTeX, however, on a title page it sometimes seems like it doesn’t work.

To remove the page number, you just need to set the page style to empty using:


On a title page, it must be put after the \maketitle command. This is important as the \maketitle command will re-introduce the page numbers. It is normally put at the beginning of the page or section for which you want to remove page numbers.

If you only want the page number to be removed on the title page and come back for the rest of the document, use:


As this command will only affect the current page.

Of course you can instead set the pagestyle to any of the other pre-defined LaTeX page styles, or even change the numbering system.
