Housing and Residential Life

Options and Prices

The housing options available through John Cabot University Housing are the Gianicolo Residence, Lungara Apartments and the Trastevere Apartments. For Fall and Spring semesters, neighborhood apartments become available only after the Gianicolo, Lungara and Trastevere Apartments have reached capacity. The same basic amenities and services are provided in the neighborhood apartments as in the residences. The neighborhood apartments are managed by a third-party contractor, including the cleaning and maintenance services.

John Cabot University housing is Italian by nature in every way! Our apartments can have varied floor plans, aesthetics, furnishings or locations. Students can enter up to three housing options on the application as their preferred housing options; however, the actual placement may vary based on the availability and the date of submission. 

Minors: Students are only permitted to move into John Cabot University Housing on or after their 18th birthday. For further information, please contact our Housing Office: [email protected]bot.edu.
