Distribution information

Like many of Harvard's student publications, SWIFT is distributed free of charge to the door-box of each dorm room on the Harvard College campus. This makes it a very efficient way to reach Harvard undergraduates: each and every student will come into direct contact with the magazine and a large percentage of them are likely to read or page through it. In addition, SWIFT reaches a large audience beyond Harvard College in a way that most other publications cannot. SWIFT is delivered to distribution centers at Harvard Law School and Harvard's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. This increased circulation allows you to reach large numbers of potential customers.

SWIFT is published four times during the academic year. A total of 4000 copies of each issue are distributed.


Advertising options

SWIFT offers a variety of advertisement types to meet different businesses' needs.

Half- or full-page advertisement
The most simple and economical way to reach thousands of readers. Simply provide us with a proof, or even just an idea, and we take care of the rest. We can write and design ads, and we charge one flat rate to have the ad included in every copy of the magazine.

With an insert ad, you have the choice of specifically targeting undergraduates or graduates or having your ad distributed to both groups. If you have flyers, menus, or coupons, there is no more reliable or less expensive way to distribute them around the entire campus than through SWIFT. We make sure that every advertisement you give us is stuffed inside an issue that is distributed to your target audience.

Back cover
With this option, your ad will be a constant presence in undergraduate rooms all across campus, and thousands of people will see it even without reading through the magazine. Our back cover is sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
