Presentation by the Bodleian

University Archives

The University Archives' function is to select, preserve and make available for administrative or research purposes the documentary records of Oxford University and its departments.

The University's records date from 1214 to the present, and include charters, statutes, and title deeds; records of the Chancellor's Court; the records of the University's legislative and executive bodies (e.g. Congregation, Convocation, and Hebdomadal Council); financial and central administrative records; records of students; records of University delegacies and committees; and departmental and faculty records.

Arrangements to see these records must be made in advance with the University Archives; access to some documents less than 80 years old is restricted.
