small, private, liberal-arts college which conducts its entire academic
program in English. The majority of students in AUR's summer courses are U.S. study abroad students.
Founded in 1969 as an independent, coeducational, four-year institution, The American University of Rome is located in a beautiful villa located on Rome's highest hill, the Gianicolo, on the right bank of the Tiber River. The university has an international enrollment from all over Europe and its faculty comes from leading educational, business, and government centers throughout Europe and the United States.
The AUR villa and associated facilities offer a complete range of facilities, including classrooms, art and design studios, and a student lounge.

Housing & Meals
To help you get a more authentic feel for local culture and lifestyle, AUR provides students with typical Italian-style furnished apartments in the neighborhoods surrounding our campus. In this setting, alongside Italian neighbors, students live "the Italian way", not only better integrating into the community and sharing the experience of daily Roman life, but also having the invaluable opportunity to truly act as ambassadors from their own home countries.
AUR places students in furnished apartments within areas of Rome convenient to the university campus: Trastevere, Monteverde, Colli Portuense and Giancolense. These apartments are generally assigned with 4-6 students living in 2-3 bedrooms. All apartments have kitchen facilities, are non-smoking and single-sex. All apartments are in close proximity to public transportation. Students should expect around a 30 min commute to AUR.
While living in Rome, you can cook meals in your apartment's kitchen facilities or enjoy the cuisine served at Rome's many cafés and restaurants. There are no meals included in this program, but no worries, you won't go hungry in Rome!
