The British School at Rome was established in 1901 and granted a Royal Charter in 1912 as an educational institute in the fields of archaeology, literature, music, and history of Rome and Italy of every period, and for the study of the fine arts and architecture. Today the BSR continues this tradition offering residential scholarships and fellowships to students and researchers from across the Commonwealth.

Located north of the Pincio in the elegant Parioli district, the main structure of the British School at Rome was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens (inspired by the upper storey of St Paul's Cathedral in London) for the British Pavilion at the International Exhibition held in Rome in 1911 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the unification of Italy.

Its current director is Professor Christopher Smith.
