Access to the College Archives

In accordance with the introduction of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018, we have made some important changes to our Privacy Policy. This can be found at https://www.bnc.ox.ac.uk/privacypolicies. Please contact the Archivist on [email protected] if you have any questions.

Thank you for your interest in the Brasenose Archives.

The Archives are open to all researchers who are interested in the history of the college, its members, estates and buildings. Many of the archives can be made available for research, by prior appointment. The Archives Office is situated next door to the Library, at the top of the Old Quad Tower. Please be aware that access is via a steep staircase, so do let us know if you require alternative arrangements.

Throughout 2019 the Archives will not be open on Thursdays and Fridays. Appointments must be scheduled in advance, and can be made on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays, between 10am-3pm. Please email Georgina Edwards, the College Archivist at [email protected] if you have any further queries.

The College reserves the right to charge for the provision of paper and digital copies of the archives, as well as for the retrieval of large numbers of College records from off-site storage.
