Records Management Policy and Guidance

The University has published several Record Management documents.


The University has published a Records Management Policy, a Records Retention Schedule, a Classification Scheme and a Roles and Responsibilities framework (available as downloads below). These documents are owned by the Information Management & Security Group, and the change manager for them is the University Records Manager.

Please also see our guidance page on how to use the Records Centre, which includes the centre's Terms of Use.

If you have any enquiries regarding any aspect of record-keeping, particularly the retention and disposal of records, please contact:
