³The above figures are estimates of major expenses that may be incurred in conjunction with your study abroad enrollment. They are based on the average spent in prior years and exchange rates. Actual expenses will vary according to spending habits and preferences as well as the exchange rate at the time you make your purchase or charge your credit card for expenses paid in Euros.

Financial Aid

Temple students enrolled in at least four credits may use student loans to cover all or part of the Rome summer program, including tuition and estimated living expenses, supplies, and round-trip travel. For more information, Temple students should contact the Law School Financial Aid Office in 101 Barrack Hall. Non-temple students should consult with their law school’s own financial aid office.


The cost of housing varies widely based on when you book, whether you share an apartment (or a bedroom), and in which neighborhood you rent. The closest Rome Metro stop to the campus is Flaminio.

However, most law students utilize Airbnb or Vrbo to obtain housing. There are also several nearby hotels, and Temple Rome often recommends the nearby Residence Prati and Residence Candia. Temple makes no representations or warranties concerning these websites and has no connection to them.

Please contact Ally Lamson with any questions or if you need assistance finding a roommate.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

If Temple cancels the program before it begins, we will immediately notify admitted students by email and post a cancellation notice on the Temple Law website. We may cancel the program in the unlikely event that too few students enroll or, if other issues arise. The decision to cancel will be in Temple’s sole discretion. Events that could necessitate cancellation include, but are not limited to pandemic, natural disaster, act of terror, war or civil unrest, or restrictions on travel issued because of COVID-19 or for another reason, or because of any serious security concerns affecting travel to the program or safety at the program. If Temple cancels the program before it begins, all tuition advanced to Temple will be returned to the student as soon as practicable.

Students who voluntarily drop all of their courses on or before the first day of classes will be issued a 100% tuition refund; however, students may be responsible for various fees and costs associated with travel, orientation, or other non-refundable program, travel, and housing fees and costs.

If Temple cancels the program after the program begins, Temple will notify all participating students by email. No refund will be issued if the students are able to complete the courses online or by other alternative delivery method such that they can receive academic credit. If Temple cancels the program and does not offer an alternative delivery method to complete the remaining coursework, students may be eligible for a partial, prorated refund. Likewise, if Temple cancels or reschedules a particular course, registered students may be eligible for a partial, prorated refund corresponding to any curricular change in the event students are unable to receive the same or similar academic credit for the curricular change.

If a student voluntarily withdraws from the program or an individual course after the first day of classes, or if a student is administratively withdrawn due to attendance or disciplinary issues, the student will not qualify for any refund, except as provided by the university’s policies related to medical and excused withdrawals.

PLEASE NOTE: Temple will not be responsible for any costs you may incur, including housing, airfare and any cancellation or change fees, in the event the Rome summer program is rescheduled, modified, or canceled by Temple.

U.S. Department of State Travel Advisories

Admitted students should read and understand the U.S. Department of State Country Specific Information for Italy. Whenever the Department of State revises or updates this information, Temple Law will make reasonable efforts to distribute this information to applicants, admitted students, or participants as appropriate. U.S. citizens and nationals must also register with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to enroll their trip with the U.S. Embassy in Rome.

If the Department of State issues a new or heightened Warning or Alert for Rome during the application process, after we admit students or during the program term, we will inform all applicants, admitted students, or participants by email. Temple Law reserves the right to reschedule, alter, or cancel the program for any reason, including in response to these warnings and/or alerts.
