The Underground is the official student publication of the University of Toronto Scarborough. It began distributions in 1982[1] as a newspaper and in 2009, transitioned into magazine format. Servicing about 12 500 students, the issues are distributed monthly over the course of the academic school year producing a total of eight issues per volume.

The Underground is published and governed by the Scarborough Campus Student Press (SCSP). The SCSP is a non-profit corporation independent of the Scarborough Campus Student Union (SCSU) and is funded[2] in part by a direct levy to UTSC students, received through the Department of Student Life, and revenue collected through advertising sales.

History[edit]

Balcony Square, was formed in 1969. Following an editorial that critiqued candidates for the upcoming Scarborough Campus Student Council (now Scarborough Campus Student Union) elections, the SCSC, in a closed meeting, made a decision to stop funding the Balcony Square. On March 9, 1982, The Underground was born – in a basement – published with the assistance of other student publications, students and the Canadian University Press.
