Research by appointment
The University Archives is located on the 5th floor of the Alkek Library. Research appointments are generally available Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 5:00pm (excluding holidays and energy conservation days).
Research appointments are encouraged to allow time for retrieval of offsite materials and to reserve research space. Walk-in assistance is dependent on staff and space availability, as researchers with appointments are given priority.
For questions or assistance, please Ask an Archivist.
The links below are NOT a comprehensive list of resources. These links are provided as a sample to start your research. For assistance with archival resources, please contact the University Archives.
The University Archives holds official university records, donated materials from friends and alumni, and subject files related to various buildings, property, programs, and events. Researchers interested in in-depth study may find these materials to be a rich source of information.
Prior to making an appointment, please send an e-mail with the specific research request so that staff can determine if there are relevant materials in the archives. Researchers are also welcome to schedule an initial reference consultation with an archivist to discuss research needs. Please remember that while some topics are well-documented there are still many gaps in our historical record.
