Using the collections

The University of Twente has a history of over 55 years. Over a long period we collected and preserved access to a wide range of archives which reflects the development of working, studying and living at the UT.

Interested in using archives in your studies but not sure where to start? Archive staff are here to help! We can advise you on which areas of our collections might be relevant to your project.

Historical Archive

A part of the historical archive of the University of Twente is transferred to Historisch Centrum Overijssel and is public accessible. An overview of this collection can be seen here (only available in Dutch)

Image Archive (Beeldbank)

Images of on-campus student life throughout the years, portraits of remarkable professors and employees, photos and videos of exceptional moments in the history of the University of Twente. All that, and more, can be found in the University of Twente  Beeldbank (image archive).
