University Records

The collections of University records are divided into three categories: official, clubs/societies and private.

Official records include the records of governance and administration beginning with the earliest minutes of Council (1853-) and its committees, Professorial Board (1855-1978) and Academic Board (1978-), and Faculties and Department; Registrars' correspondence; Vice-Chancellors' files; architectural plans and photographs.

The records of University clubs and societies document student and staff activities in some 75 bodies including the Students' Representative Council, sporting clubs such as the Athletics Club and Women's Tennis Club and Departmental associations such as the Medical Students' Society, the Science Club, the Chemical Society and the German Club, all of which were formed in the nineteenth century.

Also held are student records for 1853-1958 and the personal papers of many former members of academic staff.
