University of Northampton Archives
About the Archive
The University of Northampton Archive was officially opened in September 2010 and houses the historical records of the institution. These date back to 11 March, 1867 when a free public lecture on science and art was held in Northampton Town Hall. As a result of its popularity, evening classes in electricity and magnetism were started in October of the same year and the journey to today’s University of Northampton began.
Staff and students of the University as well as members of the public are welcome to visit the Archive Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4pm.
