University Royal Naval Units hold personnel files in the unit for two years after an Officer Cadet departs. Files are subsequently archived from the two to seven year period, after which they are destroyed.

The Ministry of Defence has established that the University of Aberdeen publishes minutes of the Military Education Committee; while this is non-Departmental information, the minutes do contain the following membership statistics for the Aberdeen URNU:
