The Pitt News

About Us

The Pitt News has been the University of Pittsburgh’s independent student newspaper since 1910. The newspaper publishes daily during the fall and spring semesters, with 10,000 copies of it distributed to newsstands across campus. The paper publishes weekly in the summer with breaking news being published online throughout the week.

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.
