Student gazing at mountains in the distance

In a City with Over 2,000 Years of History, Make Some of Your Own! Maryland-in-Rome is based at the American University of Rome (AUR). Overlooking the historical center of the city, the American University of Rome is located on top of the Janiculum, Rome's highest hill, and just off the ancient Roman route Via Aurelia. The neighborhood offers a variety of restaurants, shops, cafes, and an outdoor market, allowing students to savor Roman living. Students will have the opportunity to engage with both the intricate history and the vibrant modernity of Rome, while staying on track to graduate. Students have the option to participate on a number of excursions to other parts of Italy such as Pompeii or various cities in Tuscany.

To learn more about the neighborhood, check out this map!

For full details, please consult the Academic Overview

AUR is the oldest independent, four-year, degree-granting American institution of higher learning in Rome. Students have access to a broad range of courses that can fulfill major, minor, and CORE/Gen Ed requirements. It is a great place to take Art History, Business, Government & Politics, and of course Italian courses!

Read the Rome-Academic Overview to learn about the academic structure of the program. Summer students will enroll in two three-credit courses for their four week program.

For the list of AUR courses offered in your term, please review AUR's course offerings for the term you will be studying abroad. To view the UMD equivalents for those courses available for resident credit, please review the Approved Maryland-in-Rome Course Offerings.


AUR provides housing in furnished apartments located in the traditional, well-established neighborhoods of Monteverde, Giancolense, and Colli Portuense. While apartments are standardized in terms of basic amenities, they can vary greatly in terms of both proximity to the university, size, and aesthetics. There is generally only one (or a small number of) student apartment unit(s) per building and neighboring residents is typical Italian families who own their apartments. Most apartments have 2-3 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom.

All apartments are either within walking distance or conveniently located to public transit routes relative to the university. Travel times to the university vary but generally range between 15 and 35 minutes. Variances in transit times largely depend on bus frequency and local traffic. Many apartments are directly accessible by one direct bus line, while others require a change. Detailed travel instructions to/from the university and an initial supply of public transportation tickets will be provided upon arrival.

For more information about housing on the Maryland-in-Rome Program, please refer to the Housing Overview.
