Access to the College Archives

Thank you for your interest in the Brasenose Archives.

The Archive is 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 Archive Office is situated next door to the Library, at the top of the Old Quad Tower.

Please contact Helen Sumping, Archivist by email ([email protected]) if you have any further queries. Please be aware that the Archivist works part-time (Wednesday-Friday) and appointments must be scheduled in advance.

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.
