Teaching vocabulary using textbooks is sometimes boring and less meaningful due to the lack of context that possibly discourages students to learn. At university level, students are supposed to acquire intermediate to upper level of vocabulary mastery. The situation then becomes a challenge for us to cope. Authentic materials, on the other hand provide real language use which can be positively stimulate students’ interest to have sufficient exposure to English. This research is aimed at improving students’ vocabulary mastery through written authentic materials. The design of the research is classroom action research. It was conducted in a Vocabulary Building class B consisting of 43 students. The selected authentic materials are texts taken from newspaper, magazine, the internet, recipe, & forms. The result of the study shows that through authentic materials the students’ vocabulary mastery in cycle I & II improves and the achievement category is sufficient. Otherwise, students’ response towards the use of authentic texts seems increase significantly from cycle I to cycle II.
