The ancient and heritage fund has a wealth of approximately 25,000 documents among which 32 incunables (described in the Catalogue Régional des Incunables du Nord-Pas-de-Calais). These collections have been compiled thanks to numerous donators since the foundation of the university in 1874. They mirror the different areas of specialization of the school faculty: Theology, Medicine, Law, History and local History.
