The Washington Square News is the weekly student newspaper of New York University and serves the NYU, Greenwich Village, and East Village communities. The paper, better known as WSN, has a circulation of 10,000 and an estimated 40,000 readers online. It is published in print on Monday, in addition to online publication Tuesday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters, with additional issues published in the summer.

WSN is run solely by NYU students, with the paper's senior staff mostly composed of undergraduates. Its offices are located at 75 3rd Ave.

The paper is editorially independent from the university and is solely responsible in selling advertisements to fund its production.[1]

The term for the position of editor-in-chief is one calendar year, beginning in the spring semester and ending in the fall semester.


The newspaper was born in 1973 as the result of NYU's merging of their two campuses: the University Heights campus in the Bronx had published The Heights Daily News, while the Washington Square campus in Lower Manhattan originally published The Washington Square Bulletin.

In 2000, WSN launched its website nyunews.com.


In 2009, reporters Marc Beja and Adam Playford (Editor-in-Chief, 2008) won 1st place in the category of "Best News Story" from the New York State Press Association and National Winner in the category of "In-depth reporting" from the Society of Professional Journalists. At the same time Alvin Chang (Editor-in-Chief, 2007) won best columnist.

Washington Square News won an Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker award in 2004, that same year it was awarded the title of Overall Best Newspaper.[2]

In 2003, the paper won seven first-place awards in the Division 1 "Better College Newspaper Contest" of the New York State Press Association.
