The Gateway is the official student newspaper at the University of Alberta. It is published most Wednesdays during the academic year (with three issues during the spring/summer term) by the Gateway Student Journalism Society (GSJS), a student-run, autonomous, apolitical not-for-profit organization, operated in accordance with the Societies Act of Alberta.

The Gateway‘s primary objectives are:

- To sponsor advancement of education of University of Alberta students through the various practices of journalism and the publication of the Gateway.

- To provide a fair, reliable, and clear source of information, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on issues which directly affect students, whether they are local, national, or international.

The Gateway collects a $3.09 levy per student each Fall and Winter term (with a $0.39 levy for students in the Spring/Summer terms), in accordance with Students’ Union Bylaw 3000 Schedule 1.

The Gateway is proud to be a founding member of the Canadian University Press.

Our offices are located in Suite 3-04 of the Students’ Union Building on the University of Alberta campus. For more contact information, please click here.
