The Gianicolo Residence is JCU's apartment-style, academic living community in Trastevere, just a 5 minute walk from the Guarini Campus and a 10 minute walk from the Tiber Campus. The building has 70 independent apartments housing 250 students. The apartments function as fully independent living units which include an equipped kitchen, 1-2 bathrooms depending on the number of students, and a common area. It is important to note that in Italy, the "common area" might not denote a separate room (like a living room) but additional seating space in the kitchen.
The Gianicolo Residence is home to the Office of Housing and Residential Life and, like all of our housing options, is served by a team of Resident Assistants ready to assist students as they settle into Roman life. The Residence's amenities include: 24/7 security, wireless internet, regular cleaning of common areas, and central air/heat.

The Social Room is open 24-hours a day and available to all residents when not otherwise reserved for special events hosted or approved by the Housing Office. The Social Room is a place to socialize, work on group projects, etc. Residents may also study in the Social Room.
The Quiet Study Area
The Quiet Study Area is open 24-hours a day. It is a quiet space for study where talking, internet voice chatting of any form, group work, etc., are not permitted at any time. The Quiet Study Area is a communal space with two computer workstations.
