Learning in the Eternal City

At the Rome Campus students are able not only to take Catholic University courses but also to immerse themselves in the Eternal City.

The liberal arts curriculum centered on the city of Rome enables them to supplement their academic work with first-hand experiences relevant to the course material covered in their classes. Additionally, they are able to make the most of their time in Rome by visiting its many attractions and exploring the city's culture and history.


Students are expected to act responsibly at all times. They are expected to treat the facilities and each other with the utmost respect.


Students must get permission from program staff for all guests to the Rome campus. Guests must submit a valid ID. Each student is allowed to have up to 2 non-program visitors at a time. All guests must leave by 7:30pm Monday to Thursday and by 9:00pm Friday to Sunday. Guests are not permitted anywhere on Campus after the designated time, including the garden nor the lobby. No overnight guests are allowed under any circumstances.

Residents are welcome to visit one another on different floors between the hours of 9am and 2am. As the Catholic University code of Student Conduct states, "The University affirms that sexual relationships are designed by God to be expressed solely within a marriage between husband and wife. Sexual acts of any kind outside the confines of marriage are inconsistent with the teachings and moral values of the Catholic Church and are prohibited by the University's Code of Student Conduct. An overnight visit with a sexual partner is prohibited as this type of behavior is incompatible with the mission of the University as well as with the rights of roommates and community members to live in an appropriate and comfortable environment."
