SPUR is an independent student newspaper that is distributed to all major university campuses in Adelaide, Australia. The first issue was released early in 2012, and the SPUR Magazine website was launched in November 2012. Three print editions were released in 2012, with plans for a monthly schedule in 2013. The website is updated with a new post thrice daily.
In the first issue of SPUR, the editors cited pervading "inferior quality student magazines" as their magazine's raison d'etre. In an article in UniLife, it was revealed that the particular publication the editors were "dissatisfied" with was University of Adelaide union run magazine On Dit. On Dit has published at least one story about the rivalry, while also running editorial denying that a rivalry exists.
