Make Legacy Possible

As a center for research and creativity, the University Archives promote translational and innovative uses of primary sources. We inspire our community to seek knowledge of the past, tell stories from university history, and advance research using our collections, demonstrating Carnegie Mellon’s continuous impact on society.

The University Archives are home to more than 100 years of CMU history. Our reading room is located in Hunt Library on the university's Pittsburgh campus and our collections contain approximately 5,000 linear feet and 10TB of historic records and materials.

Everyone is welcome to do research in the Archives. We recommend making an appointment as many of our collections are stored offsite and may require time for delivery. Contact us to make an appointment. We are here to help.
