Student Life

The John Felice Rome Center Campus

PROLAW is taught at the John Felice Rome Center of Loyola University Chicago. Loyola has operated this campus in Italy since 1962, where it offers a variety of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs for well qualified students of all nationalities and religions who are prepared to undertake coursework in English leading to accredited US degrees.

PROLAW in Rome

The Rome location provides opportunities for PROLAW students to develop valuable networks with the several key development and humanitarian relief organizations headquartered in the City. It also provides a unique opportunity for students to develop professional and personal relationships with Italian and other European individuals and institutions while at the same time studying at a fully accredited and well established US University.

Lodging and Rome

Most students live in conveniently located long-stay residences or private apartments in the area close to campus. The campus is located in the Balduina district of Monte Mario, Rome’s highest hill and spans five acres. The nearest bus stop is only two blocks away, providing a short, 20-minute ride to the Vatican City or an easy, 40 minute trip to downtown. Within walking distance are grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, salons, a convenience store, a post office, banks and ATMs, and other small businesses. PROLAW Student Services are readily available to help admitted students find accommodation and adjust to life in the Eternal City.
