The College Archives is an information center for the history of Connecticut College. It contains photographs, scrapbooks, films, videos, audio tapes, artifacts, ephemera, publications, personal papers, and official records of the college.

Of special interest are the records of the American Dance Festival during its time of residence at Connecticut College and of the Connecticut College Arboretum.

The Archives also develops records retention plans with departments of the college, providing assistance with records transfer (re: Collection Guidelines and Transfer Procedures.)

Honors Papers and Master of Arts Theses can be found in the archive collections.
