Volunteering in Archives

Hull University Archives (HUA) can help students to develop their skills and gain new experiences during their time at Hull University. We may be able to offer student volunteering opportunities which can involve one or more of the following elements: listing archival collections; selection and digitization of material for outreach purposes; and research using original sources. 

Volunteering opportunities take place onsite at the Hull History Centre. Getting involved allows students to develop employability skills, an understanding of the heritage sector in practice, a chance to work with unique archival resources, and a wider student experience.

Apply to be a Volunteer

If any students are interested in HUA volunteering opportunities, please download the application form below. Completed applications can be emailed to and should be marked 'FAO HUA Staff - Student Volunteering Application'. Alternatively, completed applications can be returned in person or by post to Hull History Centre, Worship Street, Hull, HU2 8BG.

Applicants will be contacted by a member of HUA staff to acknowledge receipt of applications and to provide further information about current volunteering opportunities. Please note that HUA is a small team and may not always be able to accommodate volunteers. However, application forms will be kept and applicants may be contacted as and when defined volunteer positions become available.
