Over the years, Concrete has documented student life and university events across 338 issues - more than 40.5m pages. Launched in 1992, the first issues cover the construction of Nelson Court and Constable Terrace on campus, and Castle Mall in the city centre.

Over the years, well-known faces including Stephen Fry, Sir Paul McCartney, Bob Geldof and UEA alumnus Greg James have appeared in its pages.

A reception to mark the event was held at the Sainsbury Centre last week, with student editors and journalists past and present attending.

Vice-chancellor professor David Richardon said: 'Concrete is a very important part of the fabric of life at UEA, not least because its reporters hold the university's authorities and students union to account - an entirely healthy and necessary role.'
