Where Can I find Newspapers?
Newspapers are available Monday—Friday in kiosks and open air racks throughout University Park campus during the semester. During the summer, distribution is limited. Visit our digital access page for information on how to access news website and apps.
Most Commonwealth Campuses have access to printed newspapers. The available newspapers vary by location. Digital access is also available for all students at the Commonwealth Campuses.
We want to help students stay informed on local, national, and global news and to gain a broader perspective inside and outside of classrooms. To achieve this goal, we provide access to physical and digital news sources at no-additional-cost to students.
