The Gazette began in 1969 as a weekly on-campus bulletin highlighting administrative announcements.
Advances in desktop publishing and an expanding mandate resulted in the paper converting to newsprint tabloid format in 1990.
Published bi-weekly during the academic year by the Department of Marketing and Communications, the Gazette covered current events, governance, and research on campus as well as public service announcements and a list of upcoming lectures, seminars, exhibits, shows, and job openings. It also published a variety of supplements, including many reports of principal's committees.
In 1996, the Gazette was supplemented by the Queen's Today website (now Queen's News Centre), which provided daily news updates between issues of the Gazette.
In 2010, the Gazette ceased publication. A new monthly magazine for employees, called OnQ, was launched in September 2010.
