Access to the College Archives
Please note that due to Covid-19 the Archives are currently closed to visitors. We are continuing to answer enquiries and will provide digital material where possible.
In August 2021 there will be a 3-week closure period. We will answer all enquiries as quickly as possible after this time.
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.
If you have a research enquiry please email [email protected] and we will endeavour to answer your questions as quickly as possible.
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.
