The Simmons College Archives' collections of Archival College Records are comprised of materials created by administrators, staff, faculty, students, and alumnae in their various official capacities; the records date from the late 19th Century through the present day and detail the establishment, development, and operations of Simmons College.

Also included are records of: student clubs and organizations; College and student publications; College events; and the Alumnae Association.
The records are organized by the administrative or academic department, and finding aids and collections guides are available for selected collections.
