School of Humanities and Social Sciences & Central Administrative Offices 

Located in the beautiful old section of Aix-en-Provence, Manning Hall is completely state-of-the-art while still holding all the old charms of southern France. It is equipped with Wi-Fi and projectors in each classroom and has been completely renovated to house the most modern technology.

With the inauguration of the new School of Humanities in 2013, IAU has added an additional twelve thousand square feet of state-of-the-art offices, libraries, and classrooms equipped with smart boards and 21st-century media technology to enhance the student learning experience. Once a 17th Century Hôtel Particulier, the new School of Humanities was completely renovated and dedicated under its new name in honor of Donna Dillon Manning, whose exemplary philanthropic generosity led to a capital campaign to fully fund the renovation project of the new school.

Manning Hall is also home to IAU’s Pearson Library, housing hundreds of volumes dedicated to the study of art and art history. Pearson Library also provides electronic access to thousands of electronic resources via JSTOR and ARTSTOR. In addition, the building houses the senior Academic and Student Affairs staff with a new Counseling and Wellness Center to better serve the needs of our students.

Students have access to the building with a code for the front door. A receptionist sits at the front welcome desk to help answer questions and direct students and visitors. Manning Hall is also home to the Housing Coordinator, Student Life Coordinator, Academic Deans for the School of Social Sciences & Humanities and Business & International Relations, and other IAU staff members.
