The Daily Universe (1956- ) is the student created newspaper for reporting on activities on Brigham Young University campus and the surrounding community. The Daily Universe has a staff of journalism students who are led by a faculty advisor.

The Daily Universe was the campus-lab for journalism students. The Daily Universe mainly existed to train journalism and public relations students in writing for mass media.
