Most of the OMI students come from abroad and we know that the transition to a new country is not always the easiest process. The mission of our student life department is to make Rome your New Home and enhance this feeling as the days go by. We strive to promote personal growth, but we know how important it is for our students to receive the support they need during this journey.
The student life supports our students with the following:
The first time you will be approached by our student life department will be a significant one! We will help you organize your travel plans according to your academic and athletic schedule
Apartments check-ins and check-outs are coordinated by our student life department. We will make sure you will enjoy your stay in Rome!
Day to day communications, class schedule, local news, anything related to your overall Rome experience will be coordinated and supported by student life
OUR HOME - ROME
We are proud to call Rome our Home! Being in Rome gives our student-athletes the opportunity to visit a fantastic country: Italy. Live a life-time experience in the “Eternal City” while studying and playing sports! Rome offers everything a student studying abroad looks for. A city with no limits, rich of art, culture, history, energy, diversity, and opportunities.
- THE ETERNAL CITY
With a population of 4.2 million people, Rome is the capital of Italy. Rome owns the status of a global city and its historic center is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site
The city is considered a cultural, artistic and historical gem that attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. Rome’s cuisine is considered a gastronomical heritage of the peninsula
The strategic position of Rome allows our students to easily travel across Italy. The entire peninsula is well connected by an efficient public transportation linking beautiful cities such as Florence, Milan, Turin, Venice, and Naples
ANCIENT MEETS FUTURE
The most fascinating aspect of Rome is its standing as a city where ancient and modern weave in and out of each other; it is hard to determine where one era ends and another one begins.
Rome is one of the most important tourist destinations of the world, due to the incalculable immensity of its archaeological and artistic treasures, as well as for the charm of its unique traditions, the beauty of its panoramic views, and the majesty of its magnificent “villas” (parks). Among the most significant resources are the many museums – Musei Capitolini, the Vatican Museums and the Galleria Borghese and others dedicated to modern and contemporary art – aqueducts, fountains, churches, palaces, historical buildings, the monuments and ruins of the Roman Forum, and the Catacombs.
Our futurist approach creates a perfect contrast that combines ancient and modern. The result is an environment where tradition and culture are the pillars of a modern era in Rome.
Our campus is located in the city center of Rome, a few steps away from the main attractions of the Eternal City. Immersed in nature, the university is located in a strategic position, close to public transportation, allowing our student-athletes to move around easily and enjoy Rome.
We are in the hearth of Rome! Our location guarantees our students the most authentic experience while in Italy
With students coming from all over the world, our campus hosts many different cultures, ethnicities, and customs.
The first language on campus is English. However, we care about authenticity so most of our faculty staff speaks Italian also!
You will have the opportunity to enjoy studying in a university with a highly innovative imprint and at the same time in an atmosphere of rare beauty, steeped in history and ancient conquests. This will enhance the development of competences in order to deal with employment in an ever rapidly changing world.
There are a variety of transportation services available in Rome, making it easy to move around and explore. OMI means living an authentic and professional experience while surrounded by a spectacular scenery. Our history is now a part of the rich story that makes up the fabric of this magnificent city.
One of the most important aspects of your time at OMI will be your living arrangements: where you live, and who you live with. All OMI students have the option of living in our accommodations: shared apartments in Trastevere, the most iconic Roman neighborhood surrounding the university. Our lodgings are close to the city center and are equipped with a full set of modern amenities, so you have all the convenience of a private accommodation with the authentic experience of living in Rome.
Apartments may vary in style and size, however each one houses between 3 to 6 students with double and triple bedrooms, kitchen, and living area.
Apartments are fully furnished, and kitchen equipment, bedding and towels are provided. In addition, 24/7 assistance is available if needed.
The cost for living in our apartment is EUR 3,650 per semester; utilities, furniture, and 24/7 assistance are included. They are available to our students for 9 full months.
While they vary in location, style and size, our apartments are all bright, comfortable, and well connected to the campus, the training facility and the center of Rome.
Students have also the option to opt-out from our apartments and find an accommodation on their own. They can apply for our accommodation or opt-out once their application for the upcoming semester has been accepted.
