Shopping in Balduina

The Balduina neighborhood has plenty of options for grocery shopping. Simply, the name of the local supermarket, and O.V.S., an equivalent to the clothing and cosmetics sections of Target, are two such stores about a 20-minute walk down Via della Balduina. There are also various alimentari (smaller local grocery stores) and produce vendors in the neighborhood.

The JFRC's neighborhood also has pharmacies in case of illness or need. Farmacia Igea is the preferred pharmacy, just a 15-minute walk to the north of campus. Students are free to ask the receptionist in the Portineria or a Student Life Assistant for more information.
