How to Access Existing Files

We offer you several options to access existing UNSW TRIM files.

You can email or phone us. We are happy to help you find the file you require. We also can provide list of files in Excel spreadsheet.

Another way is, by using our self service option, TRIM WebClient (the web-based version of TRIM), which allows you to view and request retrieval of existing TRIM records online. Learn more.

File Delivery

We deliver files across the University either via hand-delivery or through the Internal Mail service depending on staff availability.

For deliveries, we will refer to UNSW Website Staff directory. If the address is incorrect, please advise us. To update your address, please login into myUNSW, click the My Staff Profile tab - Personal Details - Staff Directory.

Should you require the file more urgently, it can be retained in Records & Archives for collection, simply email to or phone us.

File Returns

Files may be returned via the Internal Mail service, or you may drop the file off to the Records & Archives office. Please the consider the security level and physical condition of the file prior to using Internal Mail. Depending on staff availability we may be able to collect the file from your office.
