Records management policy and retention schedules

Our records retention schedule sets out the length of time for which each type of record should be kept.

It is vital that records are destroyed in a planned and controlled way so that:

  • documents needed as a source of evidence or information are kept for as long as necessary
  • records no longer needed are identified and destroyed securely, freeing up space and ensuring that the university complies with information legislation

Records management policy

The purpose of this policy is to provide a framework for managing the University’s records.

Retention schedules

The retention periods are based on legislative requirements and good practice.
