Advertising with the University Observer

The University Observer is Ireland’s leading student newspaper, in Ireland’s largest university. We print 3,400 copies every two to three weeks during term, and the newspaper is a trusted and well-regarded media outlet both on and off-campus.

Our comprehensive broadsheet section contains our award-winning news, features, comment and sport sections, as well as Science and Business & Careers pages, which allow for more specific targeting of our readers.

Otwo is the University Observer’s broad-ranging art and culture supplement, focusing on different music genres (encompassing interviews, reviews and opinion), film and television (including new releases), literature, fine arts, fashion, travel, and food & drink.

We also boast one of the most visited Irish student websites with a rapidly increasing online readership. Following our recent site relaunch, we have introduced iPhone and iPad versions. Advertising with the University Observer offers you the best chance to improve your brand recognition from a wide exposure to a highly desirable and diverse student population in Ireland’s largest university, at an affordable price.
