Global Temple Conference

Temple University Rome, established in 1966, provides students from a variety of disciplines the opportunity to study in Rome for an academic year, semester or summer. Over its more than 50-year history, Temple Rome has maintained a strong academic and cultural program that takes advantage of the splendid resources Rome and Italy have to offer, both historical and contemporary. 

Courses taught at Temple Rome are specifically designed to enhance your understanding of your new surroundings. Many allow you to bring context and life to your studies through frequent on-site instruction within Rome and excursions to other cities, and by incorporating guest speakers and critics into the curriculum. Internships are also available. The program is open to qualified students matriculated at U.S. colleges and universities.

Spring 23 Capacity Alert

We are experiencing an extremely high level of interest in the Spring 2023 semester and expect the program will fill before the October 1st application deadline. As applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, we encourage you to complete your application as quickly as possible. Temple students, we will advise you on alternative program options if needed; please stay tuned for recommendations.

Temple Rome program-arranged housing is also filling fast. We will do our best to accommodate accepted students in program-arranged housing but cannot guarantee housing to all participants this year. If you have not yet completed your application, please prepare for the possibility that you will need to seek independent housing in Rome.


Temple University remains committed to providing students with meaningful global learning opportunities amidst the pandemic. Education Abroad and Overseas Campuses is here to support you from your initial interest through preparation. We encourage you to read general information about COVID-19 in Italy and what to expect from studying abroad during COVID-19. As the pandemic continues to impact study abroad opportunities, the Program Status page will be kept up-to-date on which programs are operating, cancelled, or adjusted. Please contact us if you have any questions.
