The University of Westminster holds audio recordings of interviews with alumni and long-serving or former members of staff. These interviews have been conducted as part of an Oral History Project run by the Archive since 2011. There are 70 interviews in mp3 format, accessible in our Reading Room.
The interviews cover such topics as academic courses, extra-curricular activities such as sports and social clubs, the Polytechnic Secondary School, the Students' Union, facilities such as classrooms, sports facilities, and halls of residence, student life in London, changes to the the Polytechnic/University in particular gaining University status, and changes to the student body. An Oral History Website is available featuring clips of some of the interviews.
