Students studying abroad at The American University of Rome (AUR) through UW-Platteville Education Abroad live in furnished off-campus apartments selected by AUR.
The apartment buildings also accommodate Italian families and are located in areas from which campus can be conveniently reached, such as the neighborhoods of Trastevere, Monteverde, Giancolense, and Colli Portuense. Compared to other parts of the city, these neighborhoods have more green areas, better access to public transportation, and are conveniently located with easy access to the historic center of Rome.
All apartments are either within walking distance or in close proximity to public transit routes to easily reach campus. Travel times to AUR vary but generally range between 15 and 35 minutes, and the variances in transit times largely depend on bus frequency and local traffic. Many apartments are directly accessible from AUR by one direct bus line, while others require a change. Detailed travel instructions to and from the university and an initial supply of public transportation tickets will be provided during students' on-site orientation.
Apartments are usually shared between five or six students studying abroad through UW-Platteville Education Abroad and have two or three bedrooms, which are typically shared. Amenities include: a living space with a TV, a kitchen with basic kitchen utensils, a bathroom, a PC computer, a land-line phone, and linens and towels.
Meals are not included in students' program cost, so all meals are arranged and paid for out-of-pocket.
Wi-Fi is included with the accommodation at no additional cost. However, adjustments with regard to speed and availability must be anticipated.
All units have a washing machine, but as dryers are not common in Italy, dryers are not included.
The accommodation cost is not included in UW-Platteville Education Abroad’s program cost and must be paid by the student prior to their arrival in Rome. AUR and UW-Platteville staff can assist with any questions for payment options. Costs can be found under Dates and Costs section of the AUR page. If you have any questions please reachout to UW-Platteville Education Abroad offices for any questions.
