The CU Independent is the only official news source for the CU Boulder campus community that’s produced by students. We were one of the first college newspapers in the US to go all-digital, and are proud of our ability to cover breaking news with our online-only platform.

The CU Independent is housed within the university’s Journalism and Mass Communications program, and is staffed by students from both within the J-school and across CU’s many disciplines.

The CU Independent staff produces news, sports and feature stories daily and posts them online.

You can reach students, staff, faculty and alumni by placing your advertisement on the CU Independent. We generate an average of 70,000 pageviews every month.

Our ad rates are very affordable, and we offer cutting-edge advertising options including text ads in our social media streams (Facebook, Twitter), as well as advertising positions on our new Mobile App.
