University Archives


Archives Visitor Information

The University Archives houses materials dating back to the school's founding by the North Carolina Legislature in 1891 as a training school for "colored teachers".

Historically valuable institutional records, photographs, ephemera, and artifacts relating to the University's distinguished leaders, academic departments, and the student body are preserved and made available in the Archives, as well as Rare Book and Gift Collections.


Monday thru Friday, by appointment

Please Note: Research is by appointment. Because of very limited staffing, researchers are strongly advised to call or e-mail to make an appointment in advance in order to access archival materials. Speaking with the archivist before a visit or e-mailing will allow us to assist you effectively. To reach the University Archivist or submit a reference question, contact:
