UCT's student newspaper, Varsity, launched its website www.varsitynewspaper.co.za on 5 May to make the newspaper easily accessible to a wider range of readers.
Varsity's deputy editor, Zerene Haddad, said the fortnightly publication prints only 6 000 copies of each edition. "But our readership is much higher that that."
A census a few years ago showed that the paper had about 15 000 readers.
The site resembles a blogsite more than a website, with readers able to comment on articles and communicate directly with each other and with staff writers.
It is updated every fortnight, when the relevant edition of Varsity is uploaded.
