Abstract.We introduce the category ${\bf IVRel}(H)$ consisting of interval-valued H-fuzzy relational spaces and relation preserving mappings between them and we study structures of the category ${\bf IVRel}(H)$ in the viewpoint of the topological universe introduced by Nel. Thus we show that ${\bf IVRel}(H)$ satisfies all the conditions of a topological universe over Set except the terminal separator property and ${\bf IVRel}(H)$ is Cartesian closed over Set. Further more, we study some relations among ${\bf Rel}(H)$, ${\bf IRel}(H)$ and ${\bf IVRel}(H)$.
