All study abroad programs are cancelled for the fall semester. At the present time, global travel restrictions are still in place, most of the countries are not processing visas, and the pandemic is getting worse in many parts of the world. A second wave in areas that have otherwise seen improvement could further jeopardize students’ health, academics, and freedom of travel, said Provost Aaron Dominguez in a message to the University community.
Studying in Rome provides Catholic University students an opportunity to live and learn in the Italian capital. It allows them to not only study, but also immerse themselves in the history and culture of the "Eternal City".
The Rome campus is located at Via Garibaldi, 28, on Rome’s Janiculum Hill. The one-acre property has a six-floor building surrounded by a 19th-century garden.
Life at the Rome campus is marked by an atmosphere of study, spirituality, health, and safety.
Students are encouraged to begin the application process as soon as possible.
By deciding to study in Rome, you will be embarking on an adventure that will change your life and broaden your understanding of the world. To be admitted into the program, you must apply, be accepted, and then prepare for your journey.
The Catholic University of America and the Australian Catholic University jointly operate a campus in Rome, Italy. The collaboration brings together the leading Catholic universities in the United States and Australia in a joint academic endeavor in Rome, about two miles from Vatican City. This agreement builds upon a long-standing relationship between the two universities that has previously allowed Catholic University students to study in Australia and ACU students to study in D.C. Now students from both universities can take advantage of the unique experience of study in Rome.Learn More
