The Ubyssey

Join us!

The Ubyssey is the definitive source of news on campus. We’ve been the official student newspaper at UBC since 1918 and we represent the student voice because, well, everything we produce is done by students. We’re fully independent — meaning we’re not run by UBC or the AMS — so you can rest assured we’ll call them out when they screw up.

Now, you’ve gotten to the end of the Guide, you must be thinking “What is The Ubyssey? How do they know so much about UBC? Are they cool? Hip with the kids? Funky fresh?” This is the part of the Guide where we loudly yell for all to hear: “We are The Ubyssey! We are funky fresh!”

The Ubyssey has been UBC’s official student newspaper since 1918. We publish in print every Tuesday and publish online everyday. We bring you the news, reviews, insider information, humour and history that’s important to students. And we know what that is because we’re students too.

If you’re interested in knowing what’s going down on campus, make sure to follow us on Facebook or check out our website ubyssey.ca.

If you want to write news, features, sports or culture? Come to The Ubyssey. If you want to take photos, shoot and edit video, or help design page and illustrate? We want you. If you just want a fun group to hang out with who occasionally go to a mansion on an island and drink in a hot tub on the roof of that mansion, we also do that.

Whether you dream of a future in journalism or you just want to see your name in print once, we have a place for you and our doors are always open. No experience needed, just a good attitude.

If you’re interested in joining us or just want to say hi, check us out in our office on the second floor of the Nest, Room 2208, Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
