  • History

    The University of Northampton Archive was officially opened in September 2010 and houses the historical records of the institution. These date back to 11 March, 1867 when a free public lecture on science and art was held in Northampton Town Hall. As a result of its popularity, evening classes in electricity and magnetism were started in October of the same year and the journey to today's University of Northampton began.
