The University Archives

The University Archives was established in 1986 and today have two main collections.

The Massey University collection includes the official archives of the University but also other material around its history, its people and their research and teaching activities, and life on campus.

The New Zealand Institutions collection is a growing collection of material from New Zealand individuals, businesses and community, cultural and professional organisations that have links with the subject areas researched and taught at Massey University. This includes the Dairy Records Archive, which is the largest collection of business records associated with the dairying industry in New Zealand.

Our collections constitute a valuable research and teaching resource that contains a wealth of historical, genealogical, industry and economic information. 

We welcome donations of material that could be deemed as historically important.

Come and join us on 9 June and learn more about what we do!
