Offsiting Records

Offsiting records

Mount Royal University has several departments, which send records to the University's offsite storage facility.

There may be several reasons why a department would elect to send their records offsite including:

  • the records are only referred to on an occasional basis
  • the records cannot be destroyed yet as they provide valuable evidence for an important business activity
  • the records will not be retrieved often (Note - There is a fee for Offsite Retrievals)
  • the records are generally needed to be retained for longer than 2 or 3 years (see Retention Schedule)
  • the department or area no longer has room to store the records

A department or area should always evaluate their situation before sending records offsite as there is a monthly cost associated for this service.

If records need to be sent offsite, the department or area will need to create an offsite vendor account.
