CollectionsThe Heritage Center collects a wide range of artifacts for presenting the extraordinary history of Colorado’s flagship university. Developing a broad and rich collection of photographs, historical artifacts and archives allows the museum to share the exciting history of the Boulder campus and its alumni with our visitors.

Our collection consists of over 25,000 photographs, books, artifacts, textiles and other material focusing primarily on the history of the University of Colorado Boulder. The research collection includes yearbooks, photographs, student/faculty directories, academic publications, student newspapers/publications, newspaper clippings, sports programs, scrapbooks, alumni publications, sports memorabilia, greek society memorabilia, personal artifacts and more.

For more information about how to access the Heritage Center’s collection for research options or photographic reproduction please visit our Research and Scanning Services page.

We continue to grow our collection through acquisitions in four key areas: campus, student, alumni, and academic history. All types of artifacts that reflect these subjects are considered. For information about donating items, please contact the Curator for more details.

The curatorial team is dedicated to the preservation of our collection so we can continue providing rich educational exhibitions and research opportunities.
