The York University Magazine is York University's alumni publication. The magazine publishes three times during the academic year and is distributed to York University alumni and donors, as well as to business and government officials, educators and news media. York Faculty and staff can also read it via the University’s intranet.
The fall print edition has a guaranteed circulation of 250,000, and offers a full range of advertising opportunities. The online-only digital edition is produced and distributed to 100,000+ alumni and donors in the spring/summer and winter and does not offer advertising at this time.
All issues are posted online for public viewing in an easy-to-read digital format.
