STUDIOS + CLASSROOMS
The Rome Center has both large and small rooms which can serve as either classrooms or studios. Classrooms are currently located on two floors of the Palazzo Pio.
 


LIVING ACCOMMODATIONS
Living accommodations for some faculty are available at the Rome Center. Apartments are fully furnished and supplied with equipment for cooking & dining, as well as bed linens and towels. Bedrooms and living areas can be arranged to accommodate twin beds or double beds, depending on guests' needs. When apartments are not available for faculty in residence, comparable accommodations are located in the vicinity of the Rome Center.
 

CONFERENCE ROOM
The spacious Conference Room, located on the first floor, has a high wood ceiling and a lovely painted frieze. The room is equipped with video and slide projectors, and a full-wall screen for projection. Multi-region DVD, VHS, and computer output may be shown with the video projector. This room makes a stunning setting for large group meetings, slide lectures, film events, reviews and exhibits of student work. It also acts as a venue for scholarly conferences.
 


LIBRARY
The Rome Center has a growing and carefully selected collection of books and teaching materials. The collection is strong in the areas of Architecture, Classics, Art History and related fields. The collection is non-circulating and is available to students during regular office hours.
 

ADMINISTRATION
The entrance to the Palazzo Pio is off of the small Piazza del Biscione, near the corner of the Campo de' Fiori. The UW Rome Center office is located on the third floor, accessible by an elevator up one flight of stairs. There are intercoms (which communicate with the office) at both the main door and at the third floor door. The office is open weekdays from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
 

TOWER + LOUNGE
The Tower, enclosing a small room in the remains of the Palazzo's medieval tower, is a quiet area for studying. The adjacent room serves as a Student Lounge and is also know as the "Prow" after its location on the site once occupied by the temple of Venus, which protuded from the Theater of Pompey like the prow of a ship. This room is open to all students as an area to meet and study.
