    Campus Safety

    GOOD

    Greek Life

    Only Roman!

    Clubs and Activities

    All outside.

    Great for these types of students

    If you love traveling, if you love Italy, the language , the food and possibly are into Arts.. and can do without the big American college campus life.. and walk the streets of Rome without fear and can live without drying your clothes in a drying machine during the winter, this could be for you!

    Bang for the buck

    Despite a not so perfect appearance or great and prompt organization, you are in Rome and it is mostly a Liberal Art school . Rome is your campus. The idea would be to connect outside the school with local people and really live it. Up to you!

    What to do for fun

    Another 5 stars. pubs, bars restaurants and a vibrant downtown full of fanstastic art the whole world envies is just awesome.. recommend the purchase of a used lambretta to get around. faster and cheaper!

    Food and Dining

    you are in the Trastevere. it is 5 full big stars!! cannot argue on this one!

    Dorm Life

    not very comfortable. urban, tight arrangements and not on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Did not appear to be tough, but we couldn't say for sure.

    Tips for prospective students

    make sure you visit during classes, during the week. Also look at schools in Florence they tend to be more organized for the American student.

    In three sentences

    If you are looking for a big green lawn you will not find it. Very small school, pretty much all inside one building. Rome is the campus! Dorms are about a mile or two away. no gym, no dryer, 1000 students. Classes all held in English. organization was not the first thing that came to our minds when we visited this school just recently this summer, but there is a family feel ...

    What to do for fun

    You are within walking distance of all of Rome. Truly right across the river from the Historic City Center and events that are coordinated by the school.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is very good, we have ID scanners at the residence as well as guards at every door.

    Clubs and Activities

    JCU has a lot of clubs and activities, and it is also relatively easy to create your own!

    Great for these types of students

    Thrill-seekers, jet-setters, independent students looking for the challenge of living abroad!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have many beautiful terraces!! Our Guarini campus used to be a convent.

    Bang for the buck

    There are many opportunities to take advantage of at John Cabot, but you have to be proactive!

    What to do for fun

    JCU hosts a lot of fun events, plus we are located in a very student-friendly neighborhood. Rome as a whole has so much to offer!

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty good, I don't have a meal plan so I rarely eat there.

    Dorm Life

    The university apartments are nice and security is tight.

    Academic Rigor

    There is a very wide range of classes. Classes are challenging but professors are generally enthusiastic and interested in their students, which definitely enriches the learning experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    Talk to current students about life at the university! JCU's student body is so diverse and welcoming towards everyone.

    In three sentences

    JCU has a fantastic atmosphere paired with the huge benefit of being located in one of the most beautiful cities in the world! I am both challenged and inspired at John Cabot, and it only gets better each year. I know when I graduate that I will be fully prepared for a happy and successful future!
