The IIS Relocates to New Premises
January 2009

The Institute of Ismaili Studies is moving to new leased premises, located at 210 Euston Road in Central London, as of January 2009. These new premises are substantial and offer the opportunity for co-location of the IIS, AKU-ISMC, and AKF (UK) in the same premises.

The IIS relocates to new premisesEarly in 2009, the offices of the Aga Khan Foundation (UK) will relocate from the Ismaili Centre in South Kensington to the Euston Road facility. Prior to the beginning of the academic year in 2009, the Aga Khan University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations will also relocate from their current premises in Bedford Square to the Euston Road building. Whilst all three institutions will maintain their distinct identities, programmes, and staff, their co-location will provide opportunities for greater institutional synergy and effective resource sharing.

The IIS relocates to new premisesDuring the last thirteen years, while the IIS has been located at Grosvenor Gardens, its research and publications activities as well as educational and programmatic endeavours have expanded considerably, leading to a corresponding growth in the number of faculty, staff and students. The new premises will allow sufficient space to house these endeavours, as they continue to grow.

The location of the new premises near other institutions of relevance to the IIS, such as the British Library, School of Oriental and African Studies, and University of London’s Institute of Education, is a significant advantage for faculty and students. The premises are also conveniently located in terms of public transport links. They are in close proximity to Euston, Euston Square and Warren Street underground stations, and within a short distance of King’s Cross/St. Pancras National Rail Stations, with easy connections to Europe.

We look forward to welcoming visitors to our new premises.
