The American University of Rome
3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: With a family
Why?
When all courses are taught in English, and most students speak english, it can be quite hard to learn the native language. Living with a host family would help learning the language.

The accommodations were nice, but expensive (as all apartments in Rome are). The size wasn't bad (by Roman standards). The apartment was quite noisy despite the fact that it was not on a street. The apartment was in Trastevere, a great place to live.

The housing was not awful by any means, except the cost was a little ridiculous. The apartment I stayed in could really use a make over all the furniture had to be circa 1972 or something. Aside from that it was definitely liveable and spacious

Personal comments
Being a loan student, my loan came late, so the school shifted my housing arrangement to whatever they had left, even though we had discussed the issue. Also, the Housing Coordinator has no sympathy or understanding of how to help with housing issues. The location was great, and although highly recommended by the scool, many students and parents were outraged at the conditions of the "historic" options.
