Summer Abroad Programs- Rome

Summer 2021- Update as of 02/04/2021

 After careful consideration, with the continual uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic in many countries, Loyola University Chicago has made the difficult decision to continue the suspension of all study abroad programs though Summer 2021. 

"After careful consideration of available data on the pandemic, emerging variants of the covid-19 virus around the world, vaccination processes and related complications in various countries, foreign travel advice, and international travel restrictions; all LUC Study Abroad will remain suspended through the end of the Summer 2021 terms. This suspension applies to all study abroad programs, including study at the JFRC (John Felice Rome Center) and LVC (Loyola Vietnam Center), LUC faculty-led programs, and all other exchange and third party programs."

(exerpt from JFRC Director's Note Concerning Summer 2021)

While we are disappointed to be unable to welcome students to the Eternal City this summer, the safety of our JFRC community is our top priority. Our many years in Rome have provided countless number of students with lifelong memories and adventures. We are working diligently for our future JFRC students who will hopefully be able to study in Italy during Fall 2021. Applications are open for those interested in the fall semester. For more information, please visit our Application Process section.
