Student Life

Your Campus in Rome

The John Felice Rome Center campus

The John Felice Rome center (the “JFRC”) is located in the Balduina district, and is where the majority of the PROLAW classes are held. The campus spans five acres and is well connected to the city center – there is a bus stop right down the street from the campus that will bring you to the nearest subway stop (Cipro) and close to the Vatican in 20 minutes. The JFRC is equipped with a state-of-the-art Information Commons, as well as a canteen, a café, a gym, and a computer lab. There are cafes, restaurants, bakeries, salons, convenience stores, a post office, banks, and other small businesses within walking distance of the campus as well.

Living in Rome

PROLAW staff and Student Services are readily available to help you find accommodation and adjust to life in the Eternal City. During your first days in Rome PROLAW will help you familiarize yourselves with city center with a guided tour, and later allow you to explore the towns outside of Rome during the annual PROLAW trip to Orvieto in Umbria. Dinners and movie nights on campus are also organized by the program for the PROLAW students. Take advantage as well of Rome’s many historical sites, museums, art galleries, and restaurants. PROLAW will do its best to make your stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world a memorable one!
