Durham University records (from 1832)

Since its founding in 1832 thousands of students have come to Durham University to further their studies and to enrich their lives in a myriad of ways. The Special Collections Department is also home to the university's own archive. While many pre-war records have been lost, there are still substantial collections of records of governance, admissions, examinations, colleges, publications, clubs and ephemera. Together these are an excellent resource for researching student life and learning over the last 175 years. Our records can not of course document those years before a student's matriculation nor those after graduation, and the use of recent records containing personal information will be restricted.
