Information relating to locating archive material held in Hull and the UK

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 contact us at archives@hull.ac.uk. Emails should be marked 'FAO HUA Staff - Student Volunteering Application'.

On receipt of expressions of interest, enquirers will be contacted by a member of HUA staff to acknowledge receipt 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.
