LSBU Archives Home

The University Archives Centre collects and makes accessible the institutional archives of London South Bank University (LSBU) and the institutions that it was amalgamated from. We hold material tracing LSBU’s history from its foundation as the Borough Polytechnic Institute in 1892 to the present day. We are an Accredited Archives Service.

Enquiries and Visiting the Archives

The University Archives Centre is open to all LSBU students as well as staff and external researchers and we welcome all research visits.

We are happy to answer enquiries on the history of the University and the items we hold, however we are unable to carry out extensive research. Please see our contact page for more information.

A bit of then and now, the concourse of the London Road Hub this morning and when it was originally built in the 1970s! #archives #LSBU LSBUArchives photo
All about annual reports this afternoon - looking at donations from our early years. Plus getting distracted by stats on how many students in each class. Most popular was Technical Arithmetic with 225, compared to 5 in Mechanical Engineering! LSBUArchives photo
We've been a bit quiet because it's been a bit hectic behind the scenes - LSBU Archives has moved! We have a fantastic new store and reading room in the LSBU Hub (look at the lovely shelves). LSBUArchives photo
