About Us

Sphinx favicon

The Sphinx is the official student newspaper of the University of Liverpool, covering news, events 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, a man landing on the moon and the microchip has been created, making the seemingly impossible possible. People have gone from wearing suits and cravats to skinny jeans, from eating jellied eels to sushi, and from reading newspapers to getting their news online. And yet The Sphinx still stands.

The Sphinx embodies the best of old and new: a vibrant range of exciting and relevant articles, exclusively online, accessible through our website, Facebook and Twitter.

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, message our facebook page or e-mail us at editor@liverpoolstudentmedia.com.
