The records that are kept at the university archives form the historical records of UNSW and those that are retained as State archives form part of the cultural resources of New South Wales.

Records & Archives are part of the Governance area of the University, within the Legal and Compliance section, in the Division of Enterprise.

Records & Archives provide the framework, expertise, support and tools to enable UNSW staff to manage University records and information assets.
