This Lasallian International Programs Consortium opportunity is offered through La Salle University in collaboration with American University of Rome. American University Rome (AUR) is a small, private university that is committed to offering liberal studies and professional courses in an international environment. AUR's liberal arts curriculum makes it an attractive study abroad location for students regardless of major. Located in the renowned Trastevere district, AUR's campus is surrounded by a garden of historic Roman pines on the crest of Rome's highest hill, the Janiculum. This location is in close proximity to the major parks of the Villa Sciarra and the Villa Pamphili, and the prestigious American Academy. Highly accessible by public transportation, AUR's campus serves as a great base from which students can experience the wonders of Rome.


Like many European universities, AUR does not provide housing directly on-campus. This gives students an opportunity to live among Romans during their semester abroad. Students will be placed with other study abroad students in 4 or 6-person flats within convenient commuting distance to AUR. All apartments have fully equipped kitchens, and students must be prepared to cook for themselves during their semester in Rome. The flats are also fully furnished with furniture, beds, towels, linens, and a washing machine. In addition, one computer with Internet service is provided in each flat. Students must only pack clothing and personal items to make their living experience complete
