The University of Bamberg archives house approximately 1500 linear metres of records. This inventory spans the years 1648 to present.

Following the dissolution of the university in 1803, the documents belonging to the university did not remain in the possession of a single institution. For this reason, the preserved documents are now divided between several archives and libraries (please see below for further inventory on university history).

Documents from the new University of Bamberg are transferred continuously to the archives.

Thus far, most records from the University of Bamberg’s institutional predecessors and publications (e.g. course catalogues, annual reports, posters etc.) have been made accessible
