For other questions and concerns that are not categorized as emergencies, the facilitator is available in the office and email. Throughout the stay, office hours are also scheduled to allow private meetings for students’ needs.

On-site orientation The on-site orientation takes place during the first week of a student’s stay. Orientation includes tours of Rome as well as practical information about life in the city, including transportation, safety and local culture. The orientation is designed to minimize adjustment difficulties upon arrival and gives students a chance to get to know other participants in the program.

Housing Accommodation is included in the total fee. Students are housed in shared apartments, located in the center of Rome at a 20 minute walking distance from Gustolab Institute. The comfortable, fully furnished apartments feature multiple double occupancy rooms, bathroom and kitchen. Free internet access is available in each room.

Excursions During the program, students have the opportunity to broaden their classroom education through several organized excursions, which are included in the price of the program. Overnight lodging, breakfast, entrance fees and transportation to and from the excursion locations are included. Excursions include a 3-day excursion to the South of Italy – Cilento Area.
