University Archives

The University Archives holds permanent UNSW records that are retained because they are valuable for legal, administrative or historical reasons. In addition to UNSW's own institutional records, the Archives also holds records from organisations or prominent people who have been associated with UNSW.

The Archives include the official administrative records of the university and private records of former officers, university-related organisations, such as clubs and societies, as well as oral histories and photographs. Resources in the Archives have been used for school and faculty histories, biographies, exhibitions, student assignments and much more.

We also have a range of reference material available for consultation in our Reading Room. 

We would like to hear from you if you are leaving UNSW and have personal papers or other records relating to your time here or can help us document any part of the story of the university and its community.
