Print Media

We have two main print media advertising options here at UWSU, the QH is our student lead newspaper, and is the official voice of the University of Westminster Students. The newspaper is handed out by our student promo team on each of our sites.

As well as the QH we also have a Smoke Magazine which we publish three a year, this contains all information regarding the upcoming term, pervious events and articles written by our students.

Digital Assets

At each of our SU offices we have digital asset boards which display visual and sound information to our students. We can offer up 20 seconds either in video or image format on a roll of 60seconds. These boards are also used internal for the SU for updates on events, scores on our sports teams and marketing for the union.

We also have six plasma screens at our Undercroft bar at our Harrow campus. The plasma screens work on the same system as the ones outside our offices, where we can offer a 20-second clip every 60 seconds. Our bar is a busy area with a capacity of 250, lunchtimes are prime time to advertise and attract our students.

Online Advertising

Social media is something that we pride ourselves on at UWSU, we have an active social media presence across all platforms. We have nearly 10,000 likes on Facebook and 7,000 followers on Twitter. We recently launched the location of secret party via Snapchat and are always looking for new ways to combine social media in campaigns as we understand that this is platform for to best in engage with students.

We also offer opportunities to advertise to our students via our website, we have limited online spaces available so for key time periods we ask that clients book early in advance.
