About our collections

What we have

The University of Winnipeg Archives is responsible for the effective and efficient management of records created by the University and its predecessor bodies, as well as selected records created by non-University entities. Certain historical records include offensive information--the descriptions of these materials are being edited to be respectful for all. For questions and comments, please contact: archives@uwinnipeg.ca or 204-786-9162. 


The Archives is the steward of the records of the University of Winnipeg and its founding colleges: Manitoba College, Wesley College, and United College. The records support the University's governance, administration, and strategic directions, and preserve its institutional memory and documentary heritage.

The Archives stewards records from individuals or organizations connected with the University, including its faculty, staff, administration, or alumni, and records relevant to the University's strategic directions, research and teaching, or service mandate. The Archives also provides stewardship for rare publications and special collections that support the teaching, research, and service mandates of the University and its communities.

Our collections of records have been organized thematically on this site, and may be browsed using the drop-down menu to the left. They are also listed on the Manitoba Archival Information Network (MAIN).

What we have online

A small percentage of the Archives holdings is available online. Our digital collections are included in the thematic drop-down menu to the left. The platforms for our content include ContentDM, Archive-It, and Youtube. Digital content is added on a regular basis.
