Global awareness is one of the central tenets of the Jesuit philosophy, and Loyola University Chicago has been on the forefront of international studies abroad since the 1960s. The University offers several opportunities for students to experience the world through its centers in Rome and Beijing.

Founded in 1962, the John Felice Rome Center is the oldest continual U.S. university program in Italy, and is one of the largest centers in Western Europe for international education in the arts and sciences. Students live and study on a picturesque five-acre campus on Via Massimi in Monte Mario, four miles from downtown Rome.

More than 400 students a year discover the cultural advantages of studying abroad in Rome. Because the Rome Center is an actual campus and academic center of Loyola University Chicago, it is fully accredited and credits earned are easily transferable to other American universities.
