Student Newspapers

We work closely with six student newspapers across South Africa, giving you one point of contact to get your advertising across the following titles.

These newspapers are distributed at busy areas across campuses where students pick them up for free. Produced by students, for students, these titles give readers news not found elsewhere. This uniqueness makes student print a resilient niche in an otherwise declining print market.

Only a small number of South African universities produce student newspapers, but those that do tend to be the same institutions that dominate among South Africa’s universities on international rankings each year. In the past we also worked with NUX at UKZN, Speculum at CUT, Taxi at TUT, Activate at Rhodes and Vuvuzela at Wits, all of which have ceased to publish print editions.

Contact us for the latest rate cards and to discuss using these newspapers in your student marketing campaign.
