In Rome students live with other CSB/SJU students in apartments located in the hearts of residential neighborhoods. Students have an opportunity to experience life in a major urban setting. Small groups of CSB/SJU students share living, cooking and sleeping quarters in these metropolises. Students are responsible for preparing their own meals while in Rome.
The approximate program dates for the Rome, Italy program is late-August to early-December.
During a semester abroad, CSB/SJU students pay the same tuition as if on campus. Instead of paying CSB/SJU Housing and Meal Plan, all students studying abroad pay an Education Abroad Fee. Find program fee cost information on the CSB/SJU Global Portal.
