University Records and Archives collects, preserves, and provides access to records created by staff and students of the University and its predecessors.

We act as the central point of information about the University’s history and welcome enquiries from students, staff and the wider community. We oversee the University’s current recordkeeping and assist departments in managing their records efficiently and in accordance with legislative requirements and good practice.

We also manage the Westminster Menswear Archive.

The Archive catalogue contains overview descriptions of each collection. The catalogue is constantly being added to so please check back, or get in touch with us if you are looking for something specific.

If you find an item or collection that you are interested in seeing, members of the public need to contact us to make an appointment; staff and students, please see our Access for staff and students for more details.

Look at our dedicated Records and Archives website to find out about the collections we hold, learn about our history and how to research on significant themes, how to access the collections and our digitised material and exhibitions. Information about the University’s current institutional records and our records management services can be found on the Records management pages.


 Accessibility: Together with AccessAble, we have created online Disabled Access Guides for our buildings.
