The Archives


For the first time in its history the Union has recently appointed a professional archivist, Sally Gilbert, to manage the collections.

Although we welcome research enquiries, the majority of the historic archive has been transferred to the Oxfordshire History Centre, and the full catalogue can be viewed here. In order to view the records a letter of permission is required from the archivist, who can be contacted at archivist@oxford-union.org. Normal working days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9-5.

A selection of historic material is retained on site, including term cards (detailing the activities of the Union), press cutting books, audio recordings, photographs, scrap books etc. Please do get in touch with any queries or comments.
