University Archives & Historical Collections of Michigan State University is a place of discovery. More than 160 years of MSU history can be explored, including original letters and diaries, photographs, and oral histories. Our collections span the entirety of MSU’s history and also contain historical materials not related to MSU. Some of our collection highlights include materials that document the physical campus and grounds, early student life, the lumber industry, and the Civil War.
Public access to the University Archives & Historical Collections is provided in Conrad Hall, Room 101, by appointment only. Appointments must be scheduled at least three (3) business days in advance: this reflects the time required to page materials and schedule staff. Appointment times are limited to hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM ET. For assistance, please contact UAHC via email at email@example.com or telephone at (517) 355-2330.
