Women in Our History

Through exploring the University Archives, this Special Collections exhibition celebrates the significant role women have played in shaping the University's history, from its foundation to the present day.

This exhibition explores four themes:

  • The Student Experience
  • Philanthropic Women
  • Pioneering Women
  • Female Firsts

From newspaper articles and photographs, to student report cards and correspondence, the Women in Our History exhibition highlights both the day-to-day and the larger scale impact of women's contributions to University life and beyond.
