We look after a range of locally, nationally and internationally significant cultural collections. The cultural resources we care for range from large scale public art to more traditional paper-based materials and are located across the University’s locations.
Most collections are accessible to the public. You can consult the archives we care for by appointment, visit our exhibition spaces during our opening hours or you can discover them at your leisure as you walk through our grounds.
