History & Archives

The archives contain documents relating to the College’s history, buildings and finance as well as papers pertaining to individual members of the College, photographs and memorabilia. The archives are typically referred to by various departments within College, external researchers, Pembroke Alumni and their descendants, and others such as purchasers of land or property which once belonged to the College. The material contained in the archives therefore provides both a source of formal records and management information for the College, and a picture of life at Pembroke through the years since its foundation in 1624.

Enquiries regarding the archives should be made to the Archivist, Amanda Ingram. Amanda can be contacted at archives@pmb.ox.ac.uk and can provide basic information, answer straightforward questions and provide a list of material available on a given topic. Please note that she is unable to carry out detailed research on behalf of enquirers.

Visitors wishing to consult the archives are admitted by prior appointment only (Thursdays and Fridays); please contact the Archivist to make arrangements.
