The Gaudie (Student Newspaper)

The Gaudie has been an iconic part of student life at the University of Aberdeen since 1934 and is one of the oldest independent student newspapers in Scotland. The tireless work of our team has led to numerous nominations for SPA awards over the years.  Published on a biweekly basis, The Gaudie can be found across campus. From King’s College to Forresterhill, The Gaudie is everywhere students are.

Within our 24 pages, readers will find not only the latest going on around Uni but sports results, satire and tips on how to become a big name on campus. 

We are committed to upholding the rights and responsibilities which our roles as journalists accord us, and strive for quality and accuracy in everything we write.


Not only does The Gaudie cater to a wide variety of individuals, it also enables students to try their hand at a variety of different reporting and writing styles. Written by you, for you, The Gaudie wouldn’t survive without its contributors. Around 150 students contribute articles and photographs on an annual basis. Our editors and production team work hard to turn the words of students into a printed paper.
All students of Aberdeen University are invited to write for The Gaudie. To contact specific sections, email them directly. For general enquiries, please message our social media pages or email
