Holy Family University Archives

Welcome to the Holy Family University Archives.

The University Archives is located in the Library on the Northeast Philadelphia Campus. The staff are pleased to assist you with records management and your research needs.

Spanning more than 50 years, our collections cover the entirety of the University’s history. Researchers can explore it using records in a variety of genre and forms including, but not limited to, original letters and documents, photographs, publications, scrapbooks, and electronic media. Some of our collection highlights are the physical campus and grounds; faculty, student, alumni, and family and friends organizations; student life from its pioneer years; faculty scholarship; the numerous offices and departments that support daily operations; milestone events and ongoing traditions; the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth; and a wide range of individuals associated with the university.
