On 1 July 1949 the Technical Education and New South Wales University of Technology Act 1949 (NSW) was proclaimed and the New South Wales University of Technology (NSWUT) officially came into being.
Initially the university's focus was on research and teaching in science and technology, but on 7 October 1958 the University of New South Wales Act (NSW) was passed, which changed the name of the university to the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and expanded the university's concerns into other scholarly areas such as the humanities and medicine.
UNSW Archives was established in 1980. More information on the history of the Archives is available at https://www.recordkeeping.unsw.edu.au/About/history.html .
