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.

In 1969 he opened our new buildings @LSBU and we have these wonderful photographs of him being shown round the labs and National Bakery School.

It's Friday afternoon, so we'd like to tell you about another one of our #LSBUstories
This is a story we found while researching the #LSBU100WIE and it involves a local family. 1/9

We have one more woman to tell you about today - there will be more #LSBUstories later in the week!
This story is possible because we were able to find out more about her career in the @WES1919 archives held at @IETLibArch - a great resource!
