All records generated in the course of business at the University of Louisville are governed by the retention requirements of the State of Kentucky. These resources will inform how long you keep your records.
The University Archives and Records Center provides free, secure storage for records that are no longer needed for day-to-day business. We will work with you to transfer permanent and store non-permanent records.
Records that have been transferred for storage may occasionally need to be returned for reference or continued use. Records are retrieved weekly upon the request of the office of origin.
When records have met their minimum retention, they may be eligible to be destroyed if no litigation, audit, or other official action involving the records has been initiated.
