Vertigo is the student magazine of the University of Technology, Sydney. Its name derives from the university's main building, which is a 28-storey brutal modernist tower block and how the Vertigo Offices were originally at its summit (they have since been moved to Level 3). The magazine is published by the UTS Students' Association.
The name Vertigo was adopted in 1991. Previously the student magazine had been called Newswit, a leftover from when UTS was the NSW Institute of Technology.
The 2013 editors of the magazine are Mairead Armstrong, Lachlan Bennett, Sally Coleman, Fiona Dunne, Tessa Feggans, Frances Mao, Joe McKenzie, Naomi Russo, Zara Selman and Hannah Story.
The editorial leadership changes annually by popular vote. This has led to a colourful and diverse history. As a result, editions change tone and style over the years, based on who the editorial team is. In one year, the paper may be a fairly innocuous comic paper, another year very strongly politically influenced. This is entirely within the ethos of the publication.
Each edition contains an editorial, satire, serious feature articles, music and movie reviews and profiles on popular artists. Comics and other artworks often are printed by the magazine, but may not be in every issue.
Office Bearer Reports
Vertigo is constitutionally required to print Office Bearer Reports for the UTS Students' Association Office Bearers if they would like to inform the student population about their role and activities. This has often led to controversies as the editorial direction often attracts a readership which may be at political odds with some Office Bearers' beliefs.
