+++ The University Archive is open +++

Now that all remaining work of our move has been completed, we are pleased to offer all of our services again.

Please note: We are currently working at capacity due to great demand. Thus, there may be some minor delays in processing all incoming requests. Since our technical hardware is also affected by this, we are temporarily unable to offer scanning as part of our reference services.

We are very much looking forward to getting in touch with you again!

University Archive

Established in 1995, the University Archive preserves and records Ruhr University Bochum’s (RUB) vast historic records since the institution’s origins in the early 1960’s. On the following pages we provide information on our work, the archival holdings and in-house service for the administration. In addition, we inform about the history of RUB as well as the current university and state-wide digitalization processes the University Archive is involved in.
