Adult Study Abroad participants are responsible for arranging their own short term housing in Rome for the duration of the program. However, we can still provide some guidance along the way!
We recommend that you begin your housing search in Prati, a residential neighborhood located very close to our campus, well connected by public transit, and well-served with shopping, restaurants, etc. For those unfamiliar with the city, the Prati neighborhood is found just west of the Tiber River, and just northeast of Vatican city (please see the map below). The neighborhood's two metro stations are Lepanto and Ottaviano, on the Metro A line.
Additional neighborhoods to consider in your search include Flaminio/Parioli (north of campus), and the Centro Storico, Rome’s historic center which includes such landmarks as Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, and more.
For easy reference, Temple University Rome is located along the Tiber River and on the Metro A line (Flaminio stop) at the address below:Temple University Rome Lungotevere Arnaldo da Brescia 15 00196 Roma RM Italy
When deciding on an apartment, also consider that many of your classes and activities will meet directly on site throughout the city of Rome. Having easy access to public transit is often just as important as being physically close to Temple Rome’s campus.
While we cannot endorse any single housing platform, past visitors to Temple Rome (including our visiting faculty) have used the following online services to find short term housing in the city:
When conducting your search on these or other platforms, keep in mind that many hosts offer special rates to guests who plan stays of 30 days or more.
