Information for UTSA Departments
The University Archives houses university records designated as "archival" on the Records Retention Schedule (PDF file). The Records Retention Schedule provides a list of official records for all departments on campus and prescribes the periods of authorized retention.
For an introduction to records retention at UTSA, instructions for transferring records to the downtown storage facility, and appropriate forms for the transferral of records to non-archival storage, please consult the UTSA Purchasing & Distribution Services Department.
For questions about the archival preservation or transfer of your department's records to the Archives, please contact the University Archivist.
