Vertigo is the flagship UTS magazine, made by, run for, and in the spirit of, UTS students. It was named after the dizzying, vertiginous height of the infamous UTS Tower building, which used to host the original magazine offices at its summit. The Vertigo brand encompasses a mixture print issues, online articles, podcasts, and video media.
#What does Vertigo stand for?
Remarkable is often a nebulous marker of achievement, and in a world that pressures students to achieve this ideal, Vertigo offers them the means to do so. The team is all about inclusivity, accessibility and representation, propelled by a strong drive for social justice. By connecting students to student life, art, music and culture, we want to amplify the raw authenticity of young voices, and ensure that curiosity, creativity and authenticity are being supported and empowered.
#What does Vertigo do for students?
The professional realm often discriminates against student work on the basis of being ‘immature’ or ‘inauthentic’. On the contrary, Vertigo creates an environment that elevates, inspires, interrogates, and showcases student work — opinions, life, culture, creativity, and experimentation. Many students get their first publishing opportunity or lucky photography break in our publication. Vertigo exists for, and because of, students; it is their voice, and it belongs to them. That feeling you get when you hold your idea as a physical thing for the first time? Vertigo lives for that feeling. We live for that feeling of seeing your work immortalised online or in print.

#Vertigo would not be possible without the Student Association
The UTS Students' Association (UTSSA) is a democratically elected representative organisation run by students, for students. Using the budget allocated to them by the university Leadership Team, the UTSSA finances a number of services to UTS students, including but not limited too: legal aid, academic support, food relief, student advocacy, and Vertigo.
