University Archives

The HKUST Archives seeks to identify, preserve, and facilitate appropriate use of University records that have permanent value; and to collect, preserve, and facilitate access to other historically significant materials relating to the University or to its impact on the region.

Since its establishment in 1996, the University Archives has been collecting University records of enduring historical value for the University. The Archives Collection consists primarily of administrative records and university publications. To browse the collection, use the Finding Aids. A significant portion of the collection is digitized in the Digital University Archives.
