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 and living in a typical Italian residential area of Rome’s city center.

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 living room with a sitting and dining area. The common areas are luminous and feature balconies. It is important to note that the "common area" might not be a separate room (like a living room), rather additional seating space in the kitchen. The furniture and amenities are standard across all JCU Housing.

Students living in the Trastevere Apartments have assigned Resident Assistants, who provide them with useful tips and support throughout the semester. Students can contact the University’s emergency phone number in case they need assistance in an emergency.

Amenities include:

  • 24/7 security
  • 24/7 emergency On-call number
  • Wireless internet
  • Regular cleaning of common areas
  • Central or independent heating (No Air-conditioning guaranteed)
  • Washing machine in each unit
  • Starter kit with towels and linens
  • Kitchen equipment (refrigerator, stove & oven, microwave, pots and pans, plates, utensils)
