The Gateway is the official student newspaper at the University of Alberta. It is published most Tuesdays and Thursdays during the academic year (with six issues during the spring/summer term) by the Gateway Student Journalism Society (GSJS), a student-run, autonomous, apolitical not-for-profit organization, operated in accordance with the Societies Act of Alberta.
The Gateway's primary objectives are:
The Gateway collects a $3.09 levy per student each Fall and Winter term (with a $0.39 levy for students in the Spring/Summer terms), in accordance with Students' Union Bylaw 3000 Schedule 1.
The Gateway is proud to be a founding member of the Canadian University Press.
Comments, concerns, or complaints about the Gateway’s content or operations should be first sent to the Editor-in-Chief. If the Editor-in-Chief is unable to resolve a complaint, it may be taken to the Gateway Student Journalism Society’s Board of Directors; beyond that, appeal is to the non-partisan Society OmbudsBoard. The chairs of the Board of Directors and the OmbudsBoard can be reached at email@example.com.

The Gateway is created using Macintosh computers, HP Scanjet flatbed scanners, and a Nikon Super Cool Scan optical film scanner. Adobe InDesign is used for layout. Adobe Illustrator is used for vector images, while Adobe Photoshop is used for raster images. Adobe Acrobat is used to create PDF files which are burned directly to plates to be mounted on the printing press at Central Web in Edmonton. The Gateway Online is powered by the Drupal content management system, the Apache web server running on FreeBSD, and designed using Coda. The Manitoban is the Gateway’s sister paper, and we love her dearly, though “not in that way.”
