The Maryland Study Centre at Kiplin Hall, North Yorkshire,UK


The Maryland Study Centre at Kiplin Hall & Gardens in North Yorkshire, UK is a unique residential facility for small group study tours, professional workshops, and studios. Located on an ancestral estate of the Calverts, the historic progenitors of Maryland colony, it was established in 1986 by the Historic Preservation Program (HISP) in the University of Maryland's School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.  Over the years, the talents and resources of HISP, its students and faculty developed the Study Centre into a facility available for use by an ever-broadening array of Maryland and US-base higher and secondary education institutions and professional groups.  Along the way, the Study Centre has benefited from the generous support of the University of Maryland, College Park, the State of Maryland, the Maryland Society for History and Culture, the Maryland Foundation for Kiplin Hall, the Society of the Ark and the Dove, and many individual donors.

The Maryland Study Centre  features:

  • Multipurpose space for classes, studio
