The four-story villa and an adjacent five-story building have a complete range of facilities, including classrooms, art and design studios, a student lounge, computer laboratories, faculty and administrative offices and classrooms. Off-campus facilities include a one-hundred seat auditorium, an art studio, design and architecture studios, faculty office, and the library.

Surrounded by its own garden, the campus is close to the major parks of Villa Sciarra and Villa Pamphili, and the renowned American Academy.

The University has an international enrollment of approximate 550 students each year, and its faculty comes from leading educational, business, and government centers throughout Europe and the United States.

Field Trips and Activities

Student Clubs Housing 

Double Bedroom in a Student Apartment

Students electing university-facilitated housing 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.

There is generally only one (or a small number of) student apartment unit(s) per building and neighboring residents are typical Italian families who own their apartments. Most apartments have two to three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Bedrooms are typically double-occupancy.

Each apartment is equipped with basic furnishings and supplies, including one single bed per student, bed linens and towels, closet/clothing storage space, typical basic Italian cookware and kitchenware, a table and chairs and furnished sitting area.
