About Us

The Pitt News has been the University of Pittsburgh’s independent undergraduate student newspaper since 1910. The newspaper publishes daily, and 13,000 copies of it are distributed to newsstands across campus. Funded through advertising revenue, The Pitt News employs more than 100 students who cover news, arts and entertainment, sports and opinions. At The Pitt News, we strive to promote discourse on campus as well as inform the Pitt student body about issues affecting college students at the University and across the country.
