Gyro has been largely replaced with a weekly digital news-letter style publication, StudentNews. Until 2014 Gyro was printed fortnightly and covered news, features, regular columns, and reviews. Printed copies were available free of charge around the Dunedin North and Central Otago campus areas, and selected sites in Dunedin city. Archive copies are held at Dunedin's Hocken Collections, which is run by the University of Otago.

Gyro traces its history back to the 1960s photocopied SAM (Students' Association Magazine), and was known as Kram, and Student Informer during the '70s, Informer and Pinch in the '80s, and Tech Torque during the '90s, until its re-branding as "gYRo" in the late 1990s ("Gyro" as of 2007). Gyro was published as a newsprint magazine during the late 1990s and as a glossy magazine in the late 2000s. Since 2011 it was published in a Zine format for regular issues, and a glossy for special issues (e.g. Orientation).

Gyro won second "Best Headline" and second "Best Small Publication" at the 2009 ASPA National Awards,[3] second "Best Headline", second "Best Reviewer" and third "Best Columnist" in the 2010 Awards, and first-equal "Best Review", third "Best Original Photography", fourth "Best editorial", and fourth "Best Unpaid News Reporter" in the 2012 awards.
