Travel & Housing
Air Transportation. SBCC has contracted with ACCENT to provide travel and housing arrangements for the Rome Semester Program. After you are accepted to the program, your $250 non-refundable first payment will be forwarded to them. ACCENT will organize an optional round-trip group flight from LAX to Rome on a regularly scheduled airline. Airfare is not included in the program price. The group flight must have a minimum of 10 participants. Space on the group flight cannot be guaranteed after flight payment deadline of October 27, 2017. You may make your own travel arrangements if you do not wish to travel with the group.
ACCENT representative(s) will meet the group flight at the appropriate airport in Rome on February 5, 2018.
For the group arrival transfer, ACCENT will arrange a coach bus or taxi transfer from the Rome airport to the designated arrival point in Rome.
Participants missing the designated group arrival transfer are responsible for checking in at the designated arrival point and time on the scheduled date of arrival and are responsible for all transfer arrangements and costs. Detailed arrival information will be provided to all participants approximately two weeks prior to arrival. Participants who are unable to check in at the designated arrival point and time may be required to make and pay for their own accommodations for the first night. On the group departure date, ACCENT will arrange a group transfer (via coach bus and/or taxi) from the designated departure point in Rome to the Rome airport.
- ACCENT will provide a Rome transit pass to each participant, valid on bus and metro for the Rome portion of the program.
Housing Arrangements. Students will be housed in double/triple occupancy rooms in shared student apartments in the Residence in Trastevere, or similar shared student apartments with a kitchen, bathroom, and general living area. Exact housing placements will be given to you upon your arrival.
