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].

There is limited availability in JCU Housing and at times demand surpasses availability. Once all housing options reach their full capacity, it will be communicated promptly to any applicant that they will be placed on a waiting list even if they applied by the deadline. Housing applications that do not meet the deposit, and full payment deadline will be waitlisted. Any submissions after the deadline will not be considered for JCU Housing. 

Waiting List

Should any spaces become available, the Housing Office will contact students immediately for confirmation and they will be asked to submit a deposit or a full payment, depending on the date of the confirmation. Upon notification of the location and type of housing assigned, students will have the choice to accept or reject the offer within 48 hours from when the notification is sent.

Housing deposit without submitting a housing application by the deadline will not be accepted and will be placed on a waiting list. The complete application must be submitted with a deposit by the deadline (midnight CET) to be fully considered for allocation. The Housing deposit without the submission of a complete application does not guarantee housing.
