For the record

Understand your role in maintaining the University record.

UNSW Kensington campus

The University's records are its corporate memory, providing evidence of actions and decisions and representing a vital asset to support its daily functions and operations. They protect the interests of UNSW and the rights of staff, graduates, students and citizens, and help UNSW to deliver its services in consistent and equitable ways.

The records that are kept at the university archives form the historical records of UNSW and those that are retained as State archives form part of the cultural resources of New South Wales.

Records & Archives are part of the Governance area of the University in the Division of Transformation, Planning & Assurance.

Records & Archives provide the framework, expertise, support and tools to enable UNSW staff to manage University records and information assets.
