Sapienza Guest House

Sapienza University visitors partaking in conferences or seminars or who have been invited by Sapienza for a period of study or research are welcome to stay at the Sapienza Guest House.

The guest house is available to visiting professors and scientists, researchers and assistants, scholarship recipients, graduates and technical administrative staff from Italian and foreign universities provided they are invited by one of the faculties or departments at Sapienza. The Sapienza Guest Residence also houses students enrolled in the Senior School for Advanced Studies.

Located at Via Volturno 42, the guest house has 19 single and 19 double rooms on five floors. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, satellite television, Internet, telephone, hair dryer and a mini bar. There are also communal living areas with kitchenettes.

There are 3 mini apartments on the first floor (including one that is accessible to wheelchairs) with 5 beds and a meeting room.

In the basement, there is a multi-purpose room (30 seats), a TV room, a reading room and a computer room with 3 computers.

The guest house is open year round. Check-in and check-out times are from 8am-10pm or until 1am with prior notification.


All reservations must be made on-line by the Sapienza faculty or department inviting the guest. Upon completion of the application form, the requesting faculty/department will receive booking confirmation via email.
