Abertay University Archives

Welcome to the Abertay University Archives.

We collect and preserve the historical records of the University, and other archive collections of historical significance that relate to the University and its objectives.

The archives are free to use and open to everyone - members of the public, students, alumni and staff. People visit for all sorts of reasons: academic research, family history, local history, and even to inspire creative projects.
