All apartments in Paris and Rome are equipped with kitchens and are fully furnished. Bed, kitchen, and bath equipment are supplied in both Paris and Rome, and the Rome apartments have washing machines. The apartments will be checked periodically for upkeep. Cost of utilities, including local telephone usage (apart from calls made to cell phones) will be included. Long-distance calls can be made with an international calling card.


In Paris, students will share two- to four-person apartments. Student will pay approximately $1,400 upon arrival for lodging.

Situated in the eleventh and fourth arrondissements, the apartments, studios, and classrooms are within walking distance of Belleville, Canal St. Martin, the historic Marais district, Notre Dame, the Louvre, and many other historic sites. The apartments are also near the central metro stop of Republique, making all of Paris easily accessible.


In Rome, students will share large apartments with four to ten other students from the program. Students will go directly to the Cornell Rome Office in Sibley to pay for their housing and sign the agreement forms. The cost of housing will be approximately $1,200.

The program headquarters and lecture room are located in a grand seventeenth-century palazzo constructed for the Cardinale Giovanni Cavallerini. It is situated in the center of monumental Rome near the Teatro Argentina. Other sites within walking distance are the neighborhoods of Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto, the Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Monument to Vittorio Emanuale II, Campo de Fiori, the Colosseo, and the Forum.

The lecture room and student apartments are located in the same facilities that house Cornell's Art, Architecture, and Planning Rome Program in the fall and spring. The dance/acting studio is located in the same building on the ground floor.
