About Us

Sphinx favicon

The Sphinx is the largest student newspaper in Liverpool, covering the news and views of the student population within the city .

Established in 1893, The Sphinx is one of the oldest student newspapers in the UK.

A lot has happened in the last 122 years, two World Wars have passed, man has landed on the Moon, and the microchip has made the seemingly impossible, possible. Yet The Sphinx still stands.

People have gone from wearing tweed jackets to skinny jeans, from eating jellied eels to sushi, and from reading newspapers to getting their news online.

The Sphinx embodies the best of old and new. You could say we wear tweed when it comes to our take on journalism: reliable, trustworthy and student-focused. But we eat sushi when it comes to what our readers want: a vibrant range of exciting and relevant articles. And of course we are online (paper is SO last century)!

We’re always on the look out for new writers, so if you’re a budding journalist, aspiring author, or just looking to do something fun and rewarding that looks great on your CV, find us at the Welcome Fair in Mountford Hall on the 24th and 25th September. Alternatively click here to find out how you can get involved.
