Princeton University students have been prolific in publishing newspapers, magazines, monographs and other periodicals, dating back at least to the 1830s.

The most widely read student publication is The Daily Princetonian, which has reported on campus events — and occasionally distressed administrations — since 1876. Editors have included Woodrow Wilson, Adlai Stevenson and James Forrestal. Nearly all issues are now digitized and available through the Princeton University Archives.

Student publications arguably began in 1835 with The Chameleon, briefly published by the Class of 1835, soon followed by The Princeton Whig, The Tattler, The Rattler and The Princeton Standard. Princeton's longest-running undergraduate periodical is the Nassau Literary Review, first published as the Nassau Monthly in 1842. It adopted the current name in 1847 and is the second-oldest collegiate literary magazine in the U.S. The satirical Tiger Magazine has been published since 1882.

Other student publications include American Foreign Policy, Business Today, the Nassau Weekly, the Princeton Journal of Bioethics, the Princeton Engineer and the Princeton Tory.

Princeton alumni's exceptional loyalty is expressed on paper — and now online — through the Princeton Alumni Weekly.

Various "friends" groups regularly issue newsletters and other publications; most substantial are The Friends of the Princeton University Library's Princeton University Library Chronicle and the Friends of the Princeton University Art Museum's Record of the Princeton University Art Museum.

The University issues numerous official publications, including the Princeton Weekly Bulletin, an email newsletter featuring stories about Princeton faculty, staff, students, special events, research and general interest news from around campus. Many departments and academic programs also issue publications and journals.
