Global Programs: Rome, Italy | Program Details
An Immersion in Roman Life and Culture
Residential and Student Life
Students live and study at St. Stephen’s School, located in an idyllic neighborhood on the Aventine Hill in the center of historic Rome. The campus is located next door to the Circus Maximus and a short walk from the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Constructed around a central courtyard, the traditional Roman-style building contains 12 classrooms, two art studios, a music room, three science laboratories, a multimedia center, photography laboratory, and a theater/auditorium.
Students will reside in campus dormitory rooms in double rooms, with occasional triples or singles, all with internet and network access. Students are assigned to same-gender rooms and floors. In a close community atmosphere, Residential Advisors will live in the dormitory along with students, and are available for assistance at all hours.
In the evenings, students will participate in supervised visits to cultural activities around Rome, and in-house “movie nights” featuring classic Italian films and modern films with an Italian or ancient Roman content.
Two weekend trips are included in the program. The first excursion will take students to Pompeii, Sorrento, and other locations in the Bay of Naples area. The second outing will include tours of Florence and nearby Orvieto, nestled in the beautiful Umbrian countryside.
All students are required to be in their rooms from the 11p.m. curfew until 7a.m.. Students are expected to sign a residential life contract and meet with staff to review policies. Students may neither possess nor consume alcohol while enrolled in this program. Violation of this policy will result in dismissal from the program.
