Overlooking the historical center, the university is located on top of the Janiculum, Rome’s highest hill. With its own garden of Roman pines, it offers a spectacular view of Rome and the surrounding hills.
The campus is near two city parks, Villa Sciarra and Villa Pamphili, and historical landmarks. The area also hosts diplomatic residences and several international academies.AUR provides free gym memberships for full-time degree-seeking students and English Language Program students. All other AUR students are eligible for a discounted membership that they can purchase or renew each semester directly at the gym.
There is a large range of diverse and fully inclusive clubs and activities at AUR. Some are faculty-led and some are student-led, but all are dynamic and fun, and we encourage all new students to get involved in at least one of our extracurricular offerings. If there is a club or activity you'd like to see that we don’t currently have, come and set it up yourself. Student Life will be here to help.
