Roma Tre’s Law Faculty is ideally located in south-central Rome, just a mile south of the third-century Aurelian Wall on one of Rome’s ancient roads, Via Ostiense. Today, this means Roma Tre’s neighborhood enjoys the best of both worlds: affordable housing, shopping and dining combined with easy commuting to Rome’s historic center. In fact, numerous points of interest lie within walking distance from campus.
The main faculty building was completed in 2000 and includes nine big classrooms, a three-story library, and a vast open-space study zone. More facilities are in an annexed building. All the facilities have wi-fi and students have access to a well-equipped computer lab.
Roma Tre Law Department is in the Ostiense area, which has been – and still is – the center of extensive urban renovation. During the day, it is bustling with students, and at night it shares an intense night-life with nearby Testaccio and Trastevere.
The Department overlooks the St.Paul-Outside-the-Walls basilica, which dates back to early Christian times and offers countless works of art. On the other side of the Law Department, at the beginning of via Ostiense, are the Pyramid of Caius Cestius (I century B.C) and the St. Paul gate (II century A.D.). Both monuments appear in the Roma Tre logo. Just behind the main University building is Garbatella, a jewel of early 20th Century urban planning with its winding lanes, distinctive villas and community buildings.
