Do you have memories of Abertay University or one of its predecessors – DIT, Dundee College of Technology, or “The Tech”? If you have a connection to the university, and a story to tell, we want to hear from you.
As part of our “Memories Re-Animated” project we want to develop our historical knowledge of the institution further by collecting memories of the people that made the university: its staff and students, and the people of the community it serves.
We need your help!
This is your chance to make your memories of the university part of its history. We’d like you to send us any memories you have of the university or its predecessor institutions. You can send us video, audio, or written versions of your memories through our Archives Submission page.
What Do We Want To Hear?
We’d love to hear your stories, no matter how long or short, and no matter how many. Do you have a particular memory of something that happened here? What were your experiences - what did you see and do; do you have memories of people here, the buildings, rooms, and even the equipment - like textiles machinery or computers?
We’d also love to see any photographs, memorabilia, documents etc, that you have relating to the history of Abertay that you might have – whether related to your story or not. Please let us know about these through the Archives Submission page too.
If you're unsure about what to speak about, we've put some suggestions below that might jog your memories. If you have stories relating to these or anything else about the history of the university please record them and send them to us at our Archives Submission page.
