Students on an ACCENT program in Rome may be placed in a student residence, apartment, or in a Roman home. Housing options vary by program.
The student residence in Rome is located in the Trastavere area, one of the most famous traditional neighborhoods in Rome. Students find that everything they need is at their fingertips – supermarkets, movie theaters, coffee bars, restaurants, an Italian open-air market and public transportation.
Apartments at the residence have three to four bedrooms with one or two bathrooms, and all apartments have been recently renovated. Each is equipped with a spacious common area, kitchen facilities, a refrigerator, oven, washing machine, television and wireless internet.
Students stay in double/triple rooms in apartments in and around the center of Rome. Each bedroom is furnished with beds, a closet or armoire, and linens. Kitchen facilities include a stove, refrigerator, cooking utensils, and dishes. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are shared by everyone in the apartment.
Students who choose a homestay in Rome live with carefully selected host families. Homestay accommodations provide students with an opportunity to observe firsthand how Italians live, and allow them to become more fully immersed in the language and culture of Italy.
Students are placed in double and single rooms in homes within the Rome city limits, with varying commutes to classes of 15 to 55 minutes by walking and metro. Ideally students considering homestays will have previous knowledge of the Italian language to participate in basic conversations.
For shorter-term programs and on overnight excursions, students stay in local hotels. For more information on the hotel(s) specific to your program, please contact ACCENT.
