Τhe Historical Archive of the University of Athens constitutes one of the most important and biggest archives of Higher Education in Greece. Its collections, which include more than 2.000.000 items,  depict not only the History of the first Greek University (year of foundation: 1837), but to a great extent, of the country too since the University of Athens was one of the most significant factors of the social, cultural and scientific life of the independent state.

The Historical Archive was founded in 1991 and it is housed in an interwar period building owned by the University, at 45 Skoufa st. Until 1991, the Archive of the University was scattered in many buildings.
