Since its foundation in 1845, Brighton College has built a significant historical collection, which is now held in the purpose-build archive on Eastern Road. This collection is not only important to the history and culture of the College, but also to the historical Kemptown area and Brighton itself.

The Brighton College Archive is not only use by Professional researchers but is embedded within our History Department and is used every day by our budding young historians and pupil-led Oral History Society.

Whether you are an Old Brightonian, a professional researcher or a history enthusiast, we would be delighted to welcome you to our Archive.
