Having served the York University community since 1964, it is an autonomous newspaper that publishes campus-related affairs within York University and its community. Its main focus is to serve the student population at York. Distributed on newsracks across the university, the newspaper sources its content from student volunteers. Additionally, the paper comprises a sports editor, a health editor, and an arts editor.[1]

The tabloid paper prints September through April of the academic school year at York University, and takes breaks through the summer. Excalibur features both online and printed versions of their weekly-issued news releases.
