Welcome to the University of Sydney Calendar Archive

The University of Sydney Calendar Archive provides a centralised, online repository of all University of Sydney Calendars, which date from 1852. This online Calendar Archive provides access to the Calendars in both PDF and Microsoft Word formats either as a single page or an entire book. It enables users to search through the Calendars for a given keyword or browse all years of the Calendar, and provides historians and academics with the opportunity to undertake specialist research projects.



Searching the Calendar Archive

The Calendar is the annual University publication which provides:

  • general and historical information about the University of Sydney
  • names of officers including administration and teaching staff
  • the statutes and regulations under which the university operates
  • the Senate resolutions relating to constitutions and courses in each faculty

In earlier years, the annual University Calendars also contained such information as:

  • the annual Senate Report to the Governor and the Executive Council which summarised University activities and included the audited University accounts, appointments and obituaries (Calendars to 1970s).
  • an accumulative list of graduates of the University, arranged by Faculty, which was updated each year (Calendars to 1975) (Note: You can also search Alumni Sidneiensis for graduates.)
  • women graduates by their married name (Calendars 1925 -1930)
  • undergraduates (Calendars to 1943-44), listing the current year undergraduates by Faculty and Year.
  • examination papers (Calendars to 1914)
  • examination results and prize holders from the previous year or years (pass and higher), and the current year matriculants who have passed the entrance test to University (Calendars to 1975)
  • scholarships, prizes and bursaries
  • timetables (almanac)
  • table of fees
  • bibliographic and research publications
