Arrival and Move-in
Travel to Rome
As Rome Start students come from all over the world, it is not possible to organize a group flight to campus. Rome Start students are asked to book their own travel arrangements to Rome.
Many students chose to arrive in Rome prior to the official move in day. Please note that it is not possible for students to arrive early or drop off luggage prior to move-in day. Should you plan to arrive in Rome prior to August 24, you will need to arrange other accommodations. Check out this list of recommended guest accommodations near campus.
Students are asked to make their own arrangements to travel to campus on move-in day. Once students have submitted their “Arrival Information and Emergency Contact” form, we will review the information. Should we notice that you will be arriving at the same time as other students, we will reach out to you so that you may coordinate travel to the campus together.

August 24, 2014, is the official move-in day for Rome Start students. Parents and family members are welcome to accompany their student to campus on the August 24 move-in day.
To assist with the move-in process, Rome Start students are offered an optional trip to IKEA as part of their orientation activities. During this excursion, students may purchase residence hall room necessities that are impractical to bring from home.
A full orientation schedule can be found on the Orientation page.
