LewisU Rome Program at LUCE: Life at Casa LaSalle

Front end of the campus

Casa Lasalle, built-in the grand style of Italy in the 1930s, has a large ceiling in most of the rooms, large windows, and wide corridors. Students have a spacious single room with a private washroom, a cabinet for clothing, television, and desk. All floors are of stone or terrazzo.

Samantha Martinez and Claudia Salazar share a laugh in the general common room.

A common room is available to relax, drink coffee, us a refrigerator, ping-pong table, or to sit and talk. The forty-acre campus is filled with trees, bushes, soccer fields, and has its own gated security system. 

The campus is within 5 minutes of major bus routes and Metro stops. And if you’re homesick, a McDonalds is four minutes away. There are three meals a day served family-style or buffet.  Dinner and lunch always have pasta. You are in Italy!!!!
