The Print Newspaper

The Print is the free official student newspaper of Queen Mary Students’ Union – written, designed and edited by students for students. The Print aims to provide our students an eclectic mix of informative, interesting and entertaining content to the students and staff of Queen Mary and beyond, and it is widely regarded as the first stop for students (and also staff!) to find out what’s happening here at Queen Mary. The content is student relevant; concentrating on the issues affecting campus, as well as the wider student experience, with the team always ensuring the newspaper is delivered as ethically and professionally as possible.

The Print covers news, sport, features, interviews, science, technology, societies, satire, comment and much more, with special pull-outs for events such as the annual Sports Varsity. Following its inaugural year in 2014-15 this year sees the paper expanding its print run to 2000 copies, and sees an increase in the number of issues we release. We also have a bigger editorial team and brand new sections.

The newspaper is delivered across campus at Queen Mary and Barts & The London covering shops, cafes, Union buildings, the Sports Centre, Library, Halls of Residences and University department areas – ensuring it is readily available to all students.
