Casa Romana: Live like a local

  • Students are placed in furnished apartments in areas surrounding the university campus. The apartments are located in traditional, well-established neighborhoods. This housing is well suited for students looking for a “full immersion” cultural experience. While apartments are standardized in terms of basic amenities, they can vary greatly in terms of both proximity to the university and aesthetics.  Students must understand that university housing is Italian by nature in every way, including but not limited to its structure, surroundings, utilities and utility providers, furnishings, building maintenance, construction and repairs, neighbors and common rules of good neighbor etiquette.
  • Apartments consist of 2-9 students and have up to 5 bedrooms (single or double), a lounge, a kitchen and bathroom. Each apartment is equipped with basic furnishings and supplies, including one single bed per student, bed linens, closet/clothing storage space, typical basic Italian cookware and kitchenware, a table and chairs and can have furnished sitting area. Each student is expected to provide his/her own paper and cleaning products as well as replace light bulbs.  All units are provided with a washing machine.
  • All apartments are same-sex, non-smoking environments.
  • Apartments are located in areas of Rome convenient to the university campus (travel time can range between 5-30 minutes). Some apartments are located within walking distance of the university. Compared to other parts of Rome, they have more green areas, better access to public transport and are conveniently located to the historic center of Rome. 
  • Students are assisted with maintenance and other issues that may arise during the occupancy. 
  • Apartments are assigned on a first-come/first-served basis.
  • A single-name roommate request will be taken into consideration but is not guaranteed in any way. Apartment living is not conducive to established social groupings.
