University of Lincoln students have voted to allow The Sun to remain on sale on campus following a referendum of the student body.
A motion had been proposed following objections to the newspaper's regular page 3 feature.
Many students claimed that the topless model shots printed by the tabloid were objectifying women and undermining equality - although others argued that it was a woman's choice to take part in glamour modelling.
Several other British universities have banned the red-top from campus shops, including Leeds, Birmingham City, Bradford, Essex, Kingston, Manchester and East Anglia.
A total of 1,310 students cast their vote and 52 per cent supported the sale of The Sun at the University of Lincoln.
Forty-eight per cent opposed its presence on the shelves.
The narrow majority victory means that campus shops will continue to stock the newspaper.
Union president Dan Sam said: "This referendum has been a fantastic example of democracy in action, with students getting actively involved in debate and conversation.
"We would like to thank everyone who voted for taking part in the referendum, voicing their opinions. We really appreciate the efforts of students, which has seen the validation number exceeded."
