Student Housing

Temple Rome places students from the Rome Entry Year program in aparthotel-style residences located in lively well-serviced central residential areas. Many students walk to school from their apartments; however campus is also easily accessible via public transportation. Students will be surrounded by local food markets, supermarkets, local shops, places to eat, and public transit options.

The apartments are in privately owned residences rented by Temple University for students. In addition to Temple Rome participants, other guests, including students from other U.S. study abroad programs, may also live in these buildings.

As these apartments are not U.S.-style student residences where rooms and configurations are uniform, each apartment can vary in size and layout, as well as in the number of students it can accommodate. Apartments house between two and four students, with no more than three students per bedroom. The apartments have been vetted by the Temple Rome staff to ensure that students have a comfortable living space, however, some aspects of the apartments may feel different from U.S. standards, so flexibility is important.

Each apartment may vary slightly in design, but they are all non-smoking and provide the same amenities including:

  • One or two-bedroom apartments layout shared by two to four people
  • Live-in first-year Resident Assistant
  • Wi-Fi
  • Kitchens with basic utensils, cookware, and stoves
  • Bathroom
  • Fire extinguishers and smoke alarms
  • First aid kits
  • Television
  • Maintenance support
  • 24/7 on-call student life staff for emergencies
  • Easy access to the metro and all public transport
  • Laundry facilities
  • Towels and linens
  • Fans or A/C
  • 24/7 reception

While the apartments are not owned by Temple University, there is good communication between Temple staff and the apartment management if problems arise.
