Bidding For Our June 2021 Auction is Now Closed

    We Moved!

    After 20 years in our Westport, Connecticut offices—a poky but charming space in a repurposed turn-of-the-century twine manufactory--we moved into a Class A corporate office building actually constructed after the year 2000!

    Our administrative offices measure nearly 6,000 square feet, and we have also acquired a 1,500-square-feet temperature-controlled and fully secured storage facility that can house bulkier consignments. University Archives is confident that our access to newer, modern facilities will be integral to our continued company growth.

    As of February 22, 2021, our new address is:

    88 Danbury Road, Suite 2A
    Wilton, CT 06897
