Heritage Quay: University Archives

Heritage Quay is the information, records management and archive service at the University of Huddersfield. We are your friendly information and records professionals, winning many awards for our services and our approach. For University staff we can help you to make the most of your information – whether it's data in systems, filing cabinets or electronic documents.

For researchers, students, academics and members of the public we act as the official archive for the University, as well as the guardian of the archives of other organisations, families and individuals dating back over 200 years. We specialise in education, British 20th/21st century music, sport, politics, theatre, art and design, and nursing, and are freely open to all.

Our 21st-century role is to collect and secure the future of archives, both digital and physical, to preserve them for generations to come, making them as accessible and available as possible.

During 2012-2017 £2million funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund alongside funding from the University of Huddersfield was invested in transforming the service, including the creation of Heritage Quay providing state-of-the-art accommodation for customers and for archives.

We hold events in Heritage Quay and elsewhere. Individual researchers can explore the online catalogue, visit the searchroom to use archives – or if you are unable to visit, use our research and copying services.
