Program Description:

Loyola University offers an automatic scholarship to all UIC students who attend the John Felice Rome Center. The scholarship is equal to a 25% reduction on tuition and room and board for the fall and spring semesters.

The John Felice Rome Center holds the distinction of being the oldest continually-operating U.S. university program in Italy.

For almost five decades now, the JFRC has served as a fully-equipped American campus; its present location is on Monte Mario near the site of a former Olympic Village, just 20 minutes northwest of Vatican City and half-ah-hour from Rome's historic city center (Roma Centro). The campus opened its doors in the spring of 1962 as the Loyola University Chicago Rome Center for Liberal Arts.

Students can take a variety of courses taught in English. More information regarding course offerings can be found at

While you're at the John Felice Rome Center, we want you to feel right at home. That means having the necessary support to ensure a smooth transition into Italian life, one that is safe and successful.

You will find all that on the JFRC's multi-level, residential campus, which spans five acres in the upper Balduina district of Monte Mario, Rome's highest hill.

The John Felice Rome Center sits atop Monte Mario in the upper Balduina district. The campus spans five acres and is located near the site of a former Olympic village.

The nearest bus stop is only two blocks away, providing a short, 20-minute ride to Vatican City or an easy, 40-minute trip to downtown.

Within walking distance are grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, a salon, a convenience store, a post office, banks and ATMs, and other small businesses.
