Records Management

The Georgia Tech Records Center provides long-term secure storage for campus business and academic records whose retention is required to meet legal and/or fiscal guidelines.

Storing your old, inactive records in the Records Center is a cost-effective means of complying with retention requirements. By systematically organizing your inactive records for transfer to the Records Center, you can free up valuable office and filing space. You can also be confident that records will be securely destroyed once they have met their retention requirements.

Storage and retrieval services are free of charge to participating campus departments.

Archives and Records Management staff can advise you in organizing your records for transfer to the Records Center.
