Curious about campus? We’ve got you covered

If you’re looking information about news, sports, entertainment and everything else Illini, The Daily Illini is your campus source. We’ve been around the University of Illinois since 1871 and are completely independent from the school, meaning we can tell you what Illinois is really like, no strings attached.

The Daily Illini is a part of Illini Media, a campus media company that also houses WPGU 107.1-FM, Buzz — a weekly entertainment publication and the Illio yearbook. As a completely student-run organization we write the stories, take the photos, check the facts and make sure we’re getting you the best information when and how you need it. We’ve been on campus for a few years, working going to class, exploring Champaign-Urbana and cheering on the Illini. You can trust us to bring you the most accurate, useful and entertaining information all year long.

The Daily Illini is more than just a newspaper. Here’s all the ways you can get your DI:

You’ll find The Daily Illini in many University buildings and distributed around campus Mondays through Thursdays when you get here in the fall.

We keep our website DailyIllini.com up to date 24/7 when school is in session and even on breaks. The site is full of videos, audio slideshows, live chats of Illini sporting events, polls and other ways for students to interact with us and with each other.
