Students studying abroad at JCU are integrated into the diverse and international degree-seeking student body. JCU is located in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome, which is one of the city’s oldest and most lively areas, abundant with art and excellent outdoor restaurants enjoyed by both Romans and visitors. The main campus is 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 courtyard where students regularly congregate to study and socialize. JCU’s Tiber building, located on the banks of Rome’s famous Tiber river, is a spacious, state-of-the-art building with smart classrooms, a student lounge and offices such as Student Services and Counseling.
JCU’s Student Services Department is committed to offering an array of activities for degree-seeking and visiting students. Student clubs and organizations seek to enable students to appreciate, benefit from and contribute to the richness and diversity of Roman culture. Organizations focus on language, sports, culture, arts, leadership, and writing.
SAI is dedicated to providing academic and cultural learning experiences abroad that enhance global awareness, professional development and social responsibility. We concentrate our programs in Europe, with a focus on in-depth learning of individual European countries and their unique global role in the geopolitical economy, humanities, and in the arts.
