The University Archive

In August 2014, London Metropolitan University began the process of constructing, for the first time, a central historic archive of material that relates to all of its precursor institutions and which contributes towards the narrative arc of London Metropolitan University's extensive history.

This archive includes (but is not limited to):

  • Committee papers
  • College prospectuses
  • Course handbooks
  • Ceremonial (e.g. awards ceremonies)
  • Photographs
  • Staff and student magazines (internal publications)
  • Students' Union handbooks and internal communications
  • Ephemera
  • Student records from c. 1910
  • Scientific equipment
  • Legal documents

As some of our material is unique, fragile and/or irreplaceable, there are some rules about its use - to help us to preserve it. For a helpful guide to using and visiting Archives please click here.

Please send any enquiries you may have about the archive via email to the following address: specialcollections@londonmet.ac.uk.

To see examples of some of the items in the University Archive, please see our Pinterest Boards.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Currently a number of collections are moving into the Special Collections Reading Room and therefore access is limited and by prior appointment only. Please contact us at the email address above to request an appointment.
