The National University of the Arts (Spanish: Universidad Nacional de las Artes, ex IUNA) is an Argentine university established in 1996 as an incorporation of various national institutions dedicated to the teaching of fine arts.

The institution's origins lay in the 1875 founding of the National Society of the Stimulus of the Arts by painters Eduardo Schiaffino, Eduardo Sívori, and others. Their guild was rechartered as the National Academy of Fine Arts in 1905 and, in 1921, on the initiative of painter and academic Ernesto de la Cárcova, as a department in the University of Buenos Aires, the National School of Fine Arts.

The latter in 1927 created the Museum of Reproductions and Comparative Sculpture. In 1936 theatre director Antonio Cunill Cabanellas founded the National Institute of Theatrical Studies. These institutions, as well as the Carlos López Buchardo National Conservatory of Music, the National Superior Institute of Folklore, the María Ruanova National Superior Institute of Dance, and others, all formed part of the new National University of the Arts in 1996
