Welcome to the online catalogue of Brunel University London Archives
The archives of Brunel University London and its predecessor colleges Maria Grey College, Shoreditch College, the West London Institute of Higher Education, and those of the British and Foreign Schools Society (BFSS), date from the beginning of the 19th century to the present day. They are of local, national and international importance to the history of education and teacher training. The archives are the university's corporate memory and are a rich and valuable resource for staff, students, the academic community and the wider public.
The online catalogue contains descriptions of our archives which have been catalogued so far, as well as some digital images.
Please note that not all of our archives have been catalogued. The online catalogue will be added to regularly, but if you do not find what you are looking for, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you.
