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.

The Gateway is created using Macintosh computers and HP Scanjet flatbed scanners. Adobe InDesign is used for layout. Adobe Illustrator is used for vector images, while Adobe Photoshop is used for raster images. Adobe Acrobat is used to create PDF files which are burned directly to plates to be mounted on the printing press at Webco in Leduc. The Gateway Online is powered by the ExpressionEngine content management system and the Apache web server running on Ubuntu 10.04. The Manitoban is the Gateway’s sister paper, and we love her dearly, though “not in that way.”
