The Institute of Advanced Architectural Studies is one of the post-graduate Institutes which was established in York by York Academic Trust. In 1961 the Institute was incorporated into the University of York when this was established. It has its origins in a summer school for architectural students, first held in 1949 to which residential courses for qualified architects, surveyors and builders were soon added. In 1966 it moved to its present premises in the King's Manor, a historic building situated in the centre of York and admirably suited for conversion to this new purpose.
