CEA offers the housing options listed below in Rome. Every attempt will be made to match each student's preferences with our housing options; however, housing preferences cannot be guaranteed as roommate and housing assignments are based upon availability, date of confirmation, and other factors. We encourage you to apply early as it will assist us in organizing your housing arrangements.

All CEA students studying in Rome have the option of living in apartments while abroad. Generally located in the Nomentana, Trieste and Bologna neighborhoods, these apartments cater perfectly to the independent, do-it-yourself type students who want to experience Rome as a local apartment-dweller would. Whip up some homemade pasta carbonara in your own, equipped kitchen, crack open your window, and watch the Italian world unfold before your eyes.

While CEA highly recommends that you choose one of our Rome housing options provided, you also have the option to arrange independent housing. Are you dying to live in a specific Roman neighborhood? Are you studying abroad with someone that you must have as your roommate? Independent housing could be the ticket for you.
Use the online or paper housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment, however CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing. Keep in mind, rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or choose to pursue independent living arrangements after the application closure date.
