University Archives

As the custodians of the corporate memory the University Archives provides and facilitates a reference service to staff and the public to help unlock the recorded memory captured in images and in the written word.

The University Archives collection holds material dating back to the founding of our University in 1911 and its history is rich and varied. The archives collection incorporates both the official administrative records as well as private papers from Academics, staff, students and individuals closely associated with this university.

Collections material can be accessed in the Special Collections and Archives reading room. Some collections material that is State archives may have access restrictions or other conditions, so we recommend that you plan in advance and contact us prior to your visit to facilitate your research.
