They school has a cafeteria which you can have lunch.
College Freshman 2013-10-07T17:25:25Z
From what I heard they do not have a special school team or various athletics games but they do have a soccer team.

JCU has no parking and parking around or anywhere in the center of Rome (downtown) could be impossible, parking is very hard to find.
College Freshman 2013-10-07T17:22:05Z
I'm born and raised in Rome, IT so I find it pretty normal for me, but I could imagine for a tourist or a foreigner coming at JCU the local atmosphere is very very different from US atmosphere. I think to fully understand the atmosphere in Rome you should first come here and see since it's very different from any US city, by the way I would recommend to go there!
College Freshman 2013-10-07T17:19:11Z
It's located in Trastevere (Rome Downtown Center) one of the most popular and chaotic places in Rome! Sure it is really a good spot, very historic, but finding an housing by yourself in that area or in all Rome could be not that easy and yeah very expensive!

It was not so much that the process of financial aide was terrible, it was more that I did not qualify for very much financial aide at John Cabot. The Financial Aide staff were always there when I had a question, but unfortunately they never seemed to be able to do much for me.
College Senior 2013-07-10T02:48:19Z
Parking ANYWHERE in Rome is a nightmare. John Cabot can not help this problem and most students do not have a car anyways so it is not an issue with this university. I can't even imagine trying to drive in Rome, let alone parking.

Health & Safety:
John Cabot is located in Rome, so you can expect some petty crime in the city. However, the university itself takes its security seriously and I have never felt unsafe in or around campus. Considering the location, John Cabot does a good job of keeping their students safe.

I love the diversity at John Cabot. We have many different students from all over the world which I think is amazing. It is great being able to sit down across from someone from an entirely different country and here about what life was/is like in their home country. The diversity is one of the things that originally stood out about the school in my mind. This last semester my roommate was from Japan, and the semester before that South Korea... This coming year I will be living with a girl born and raised in Italy.

The weather in the fall is so INCREDIBLE!!! However the weather in the spring can be a bit depressing. The spring in Rome is filled with a lot of rain, and can get very cold.
College Junior 2013-05-06T06:57:11Z
We have many places in the campus to both lounge around with friends, and to study. We have several beautiful terraces, the popular lemon tree courtyard, a student lounge, and the Tiber Cafe'. John Cabot also just expanded the school library, which we are all very pleased about. It looks absolutely beautiful!
College Junior 2013-05-06T06:45:30Z
I'm not a major fan of the Tiber Cafe, however I do enjoy many of the small restaurants surrounding the area. The school is located in the heart of Rome, it's not hard to find delicious Italian food at a decent price.

The school's location is nearly perfect because you aren't too close to the city center and you don't constantly see tourists. Everything is near the school campus which enables students ability to travel by simply walking.
College Sophomore 2013-04-02T12:05:27Z
Your in Italy, you can find great food everywhere unless you get sick of Italian.
College Sophomore 2013-04-02T12:04:13Z
Not really exposed to drugs, unless you look for it.

If the computer acts out, all you need to do is ask someone on staff to help.

Price Is Ok – Well, American students here must pay in dollars, and others must pay in euros. Apparently, here is abig difference between paying in euros or dollar because dollar is cheaper now, so students from US are lucky with it.
Many of students get scholarships. but not that much. Butthe school itself isnt very expensive, comparing to others, so most of the students are fine.
John Cabot also doesnt accept non-JCU granted scholarships, which was really frustrating for me.
College Sophomore 2012-01-16T08:04:03Z
Athletics is very poor over there since they have only Soccer team and only one gym where everyone does activities like shaping, bellydances, yoga and etc
College Sophomore 2012-01-16T07:57:47Z
This American uiversity is located in Rome, Italy, so you will find out lots of differences between typical American college and that actual one.
First of all, there is a huge problem with a space - like anywhere in Italy, so campuses are really small and old.
John Cabot offers only soccer and a couple of more sports, so dont expect a huge sport programs.
Student body is very small, so everyone knows each other and it makes everyone feel like a one big family. Student activities are very diverse, mostly they include trips around Europe and basic clubs and organizations like Drama or UN clubs.
Library is quite small, but it`s just a right size for this university. Staff is very friendly and willing to help.
General campus aesthetics isn't very well, since, Like I mentioned, both campuses are located in super-old buildings and it`s very hard to get a permission on remodeling from Italian Government.

Good Experience – I had a great experience where the housing department worked with me to cooperate with my schedule.
College Senior 2011-12-24T00:13:58Z
Athletics did not seem to be a vital part of the student body. I am not interested too much in sports, but more art and culture. I think that is why most students would study here.

Go Everywhere – JCU is in walking distance to the tram system in Rome, which makes it convenient to getting the bus and getting to the metro. The reality is, however, that it is possible to walk to many places just as easily.
Recent Alumnus 2011-06-20T01:01:23Z
People, People Everywhere – Because of the location of the school, students of JCU will find that there is a vibrant nightlife, filled not only with students and locals, but also many, many tourists.
Recent Alumnus 2011-06-20T00:58:53Z
Everything You Need – Rome is an excellent city for cheap eats, especially if you avoid the tourist areas. JCU is located in Trastevere, which is well-known for its nightlife, but also for the many great restaurants throughout it. The prices can go from very cheap to moderately expensive, depending on what you are looking for. There are also choices in non-Italian cuisines, such Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and Thai.
Recent Alumnus 2010-11-21T13:15:41Z
Most if not all of the people that attend my school use public transport, and those that do drive often use scooters to get through city traffic, and there is always somewhere to park your scooter.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
