John Cabot University maintains two campuses in Rome, each with its own distinct personality.
Walk through the Porta Settimiana (built in the third century) and you will find JCU's Frank J. Guarini Campus. Located on the grounds of the Accademia dei Lincei, the National Science Academy, where Galileo was a member, this historic building takes full advantage of Rome's mild climate, opening onto patios, terraces and a spacious "Lemon Tree" courtyard surrounded by bougainvillea. Students regularly congregate in these open spaces to study and socialize.
In addition to classrooms, the Guarini Campus houses the Aula Magna Regina auditorium, which hosts lectures, concerts, plays and films; the Frohring Library, with its study rooms, multimedia lab and media room; as well as JCU administrative offices.
JCU's Tiber Campus, located on the banks of Rome's famous Tiber river and a five-minute walk from Guarini, is a spacious, state-of-the-art building with smart classrooms, a student lounge and JCU offices such as Student Services and Counseling. Designed by the Italian modernist architect Angelo di Castro in 1958, it was completely renovated to accommodate 21st-century learning styles and technologies, while maintaining the architectural integrity of this former elementary school.
Both John Cabot University campuses are wireless and set up to encourage dialogue and collaboration among our international student population.
All UI students are required to use John Cabot housing and choose the Gianicolo Residence. If you choose the apartment option, you will be charged the housing fee for the Residence. If the Residence is full when you apply, please discuss options with your study abroad advisor.

Participants will make their own travel arrangements to Rome, taking advantage of any frequent-flyer options and/or internet specials available to them. The cost of travel is not included in the program fee.
