As an American liberal arts university located outside of the United States, JCU’s student body reflects our commitment to build an international academic community composed of both full-time degree-seeking students and visiting students that fosters intellectual tolerance, freedom and integrity.
Bringing together Italian, American and international degree-seeking students with our visiting American students, creates a unique student body that thrives in the open, international city of Rome.
JCU’s multilingual and culturally diverse community surrounds us with opportunities to observe, learn, and be innovative and creative. This community allows us to appreciate what it takes to collaborate with others whom may seem different until we discover our commonalities. This will distinguish us as we enter into a world where transnational issues present an ever greater need for mutual understanding and civil discourse.
John Cabot University maintains two campuses in Rome, each with its own distinct personality.
Walk through the Porta Settimiana (built in the third century) and you will find JCU's Frank J. Guarini Campus. Located on the grounds of the Accademia dei Lincei, the National Science Academy, where Galileo was a member, this historic building takes full advantage of Rome's mild climate, opening onto patios, terraces and a spacious "Lemon Tree" courtyard surrounded by bougainvillea. Students regularly congregate in these open spaces to study and socialize.
In addition to classrooms, the Guarini Campus houses the Aula Magna Regina auditorium, which hosts lectures, concerts, plays and films; the Frohring Library, with its study rooms, multimedia lab and media room; as well as JCU administrative offices.
JCU's Tiber Campus, located on the banks of Rome's famous Tiber river and a five-minute walk from Guarini, is a spacious, state-of-the-art building with smart classrooms, a student lounge and JCU offices such as Student Services and Counseling. Designed by the Italian modernist architect Angelo di Castro in 1958, it was completely renovated to accommodate 21st-century learning styles and technologies, while maintaining the architectural integrity of this former elementary school.
Both John Cabot University campuses are wireless and set up to encourage dialogue and collaboration among our international student population.
John Cabot University is proud to offer an American education in an international environment to every student. The Office of Housing and Residential Life functions in line with this commitment by offering university housing that provides students an opportunity to live in an international community consisting of their peers and staff from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds. The University has carefully selected locations close to the main campus buildings and in nearby residential areas that encourage students to integrate into the local community.
The Office of Housing and Residential Life supports the American belief that students living in a community of their peers benefit both academically and socially. However, JCU Housing differs from a typical dorm-style experience, and challenges students to take on the responsibilities that come along with living in a fully equipped, independent apartment. Students choosing to live in JCU Housing will gain a true understanding of how to "do as the Romans do" while studying at an American university.
