In addition to the records of university institutions, the University Archives has various collections of university history. These include the photo collection with over 10,000 images, a collection of newspaper clippings relating to around 4,500 people as well as numerous objects. There are also collections of maps and plans, leaflets, posters, student magazines and other smaller collections on various topics of university history.
The collections also include over 60 bequests from Mainz professors and other university members. Particularly noteworthy are the estates of historian Leo Just, the educator Erich Feldmann, the botanist Wilhelm Troll and the musicologist Arnold Schmitz.
The collections of the University Archives are open to anyone interested and can be viewed at our user workstation.
