Monash University was established by an Act of the Victorian Parliament in 1958 and took its first students at Clayton Campus in 1961. The University Archives was established in 1978 following passage of the Victorian Public Records Act. In the 1990s Monash merged with:

  • Chisholm Institute of Technology
  • Gippsland Institute of Advanced Education, and
  • Pharmacy College of Victoria

giving it a further four campuses. Historical records from those campuses are also held in the Archives.
