Library Champions

A Century of Student Life: Photography competition

Group of students outside of the library

Help us capture your student experience for future generations and be part of our University's unique history.

The student experience has been central to the University for the last 100 years and the University Archives play a key role in helping us understand how student life has changed, developed and diversified over the century. We need your help to create a ‘Student Life, 2022/23’ photo collection which accurately represents the life of a current student.

Using original photographs from University life in the 1920s as inspiration, we would like you to be creative and submit something similar for our photo collection, taken in 2023. We are looking for photographs for the following categories:

  • Your student bedroom
  • Social activities (sports, games, leisure)
  • Clubs and societies
  • Places you like to study

All entries which meet the specified criteria listed in the T&Cs will be added into the University Archives and preserved in our digital repository, creating a time capsule for future generations. The winning entry for each category will be awarded a £100 Love2Shop gift card and invited to a behind-the-scenes tour of the archives.

Entrants can submit 1 photograph only and the competition ends 21st April 2023 at midnight. Winning entries will be chosen at the end of May, and all prize winners will be notified by email.
