Trinity News is the student newspaper of Trinity College, and the oldest student newspaper in Ireland. It is an independent newspaper which reports on the news and views of the students and staff of Dublin University.

U12|chapter=Societies and Other Institutions|chapterurl=|quote= ] . It is using this date as the first volume that the volume numbers are currently derived.

It won "Student Newspaper of the Year" in Ireland in 2007 & 2008 [] [] .


Over the years, Trinity News has appeared in many formats including broadsheet and tabloid; as of 2008 it is a broadsheet which publishes on a fortnightly basis during term time. The newspaper is produced exclusively by students of the University under the direction of a student Editor, due to the increased number of issues and workload it has become practise for the editor to take a sabbatical from his studies. This Editor must be in good standing at the time of his election.

In addition to advertising revenue, Trinity News is funded in part by a grant from Dublin University Publications Committee, but claims full editorial independence. It is printed by "Midlands Printing", who also print the Financial Times and the Midland Tribune. The print run is 6,000 copies for each issue, which are distributed around Trinity College, various other city centre locations, Froebel College and Marino College. A small number of copies are also distributed by post to alumni and friends of the newspaper.
