The Trinity College Rome Campus

“I loved everything. The professors were so amazing and very willing to be friends just as much as teachers. The program trips were unreal, and the opportunity to foster deep and lifelong friendships with people is something I could never quantify.”​ -Student, Fall 2012

Trinity College's Rome Campus, established in 1970, offers an outstanding educational opportunity in the heart of one of the world’s great cities, where glorious treasures and haunting ruins of several magnificent civilizations are stage to a vibrant, modern capital. Students enjoy a superb location, excellent teachers, a broad liberal arts curriculum, stimulating fieldwork in Rome, a variety of internship opportunities, the city’s lively cosmopolitan culture, and faculty-led academic excursions to Venice, Florence, and Naples/Pompeii/Capri.

“Nothing, above all, is comparable to the new life that a reflective person experiences when he observes a new country.  Though I am still always myself, I believe I have been changed to the very marrow of my bones.”
