Housing and Residential Life

Viale Trastevere Apartments

The Viale Trastevere Apartments are home to about 150 students housed in individual apartments within an easy commute to the JCU Campuses (approximately a 20-25 minute walk or 15 minutes by public transportation). Students will have the benefit of integrating into a building with local Italian neighbors.

Apartments vary in size and layout and can accommodate between four and nine students. Larger apartments are divided into two triple bedrooms, one double room and one single room with two full bathrooms, one equipped kitchen (including washing machine), and a spacious living-room with a sitting and dining area.

Kitchens are furnished to Italian standards (in terms of items, quality and size): oven, cooktop, refrigerator(s), washing machine and a service balcony. The common areas are luminous and feature balconies. The furniture and amenities are standard across all JCU Housing, including internet and independent heating.*

Trastevere Apartments

The Viale Trastevere Apartment building also has assigned Resident Assistants to help students get acclimated to their new neighborhood and JCU staff is available for support in case of emergencies.

The Viale Trastevere Apartments are convenient to public transportation including buses, tram line, and the Trastevere train station (with a direct train to Fiumicino International airport).

The building features 24/7 security with armed guard as well as locked gates and secondary locked doors with security doors in each apartment with double locks. While the building is not owned by JCU, the apartments are managed directly by the Office of Housing and Residential Life.

*A/C and Clothes Dryers are not provided. Heating is restricted to times of operation under Italian regulatory laws; Internet is provided yet service is not guaranteed.

Independent Apartments

In the event that both the Gianicolo Residence and the Viale Trastevere Apartments reach capacity, the Housing Office will contract independent apartments through a third-party provider.
