Student Publications

Main page content

Do you enjoy writing? Are you interested in what's happening around campus? Do you enjoy art and literature? The University of Washington Tacoma currently has two publications — a newspaper and a literary arts magazine.

The Ledger

The Ledger is the student newspaper of University of Washington Tacoma. It's written, edited, designed, and distributed by a staff of UW Tacoma students, and paid for by your quarterly student fees. A new edition is published every week, filled with news, events, arts, entertainment, sports, photos and opinions.

You can find print copies of the paper on campus, or read it online at; a digest of headlines from the week are sent in an email newsletter to registered students each week.

If you are interested in a student job with the Ledger, be sure to visit UW Tacoma's Handshake page to search for job openings.

If you would like to submit a story idea, letter to the editor, or ask a question, email or visit during office hours.

During Autumn 2020 the Ledger office in MAT 151 will be closed as part of the campus's COVID-19 plan. Office hours will be held online at the times listed below.
