In celebration of the 175th anniversary of the founding of what is now the University of Westminster we are inviting Polytechnic alumni to tell us about their student days.

Help us compile an oral history of what it was like to be a student at the Regent Street Polytechnic or the Polytechnic of Central London (PCL).

The oral history will be published alongside a book The History of the University of Westminster 1882-1992 on the anniversary in 2013. We would love to hear your stories and experiences of your time here. Similarly if you have any photographs or ephemera that you would be willing to donate to the archive (we are happy to take copies of photos), please get in touch.

If you want to take part or need more information please contact us at
