Focused on the University of Chicago since 1892

Media Kit: 2011-2012


The Chicago Maroon has served the Hyde Park community for over one hundred years as the University of Chicago’s independent student newspaper. Founded in 1892, the Maroon has a dedicated history to providing campus related news and advertising to over 5,000 undergraduates, over 10,000 graduate and professional students, and the 43,000 residents of the Hyde Park community. In addition to our twice weekly circulation of 5,500, we reach out to tens of thousands of parents and alumni through our online content. One of the largest student organizations on campus, and by far the most read publication at the university, the Maroon is the ideal medium to reach out to this worldly and energic campus market. The Chicago Maroon publishes every Tuesday and Friday during the autumn, winter and spring academic quarters. The Maroon also publishes Grey City, a quarterly magazine, dedicated to long form, student interest journalism. Additionally, we publish three special issues: Orientation in autumn, Historic in winter, and Graduation in spring.
