Rome wasn’t built in a day. (Lucky us!)
Imagine wandering narrow, cobbled streets and ducking into a coffee bar with friends before heading back to the Waterloo studio or your own apartment. Imagine field trips to Venice, Verona and Pompeii. This is Rome – the Waterloo way.
The city of Rome is an inspiration and an important case study for those studying architecture. Since 1979, fourth-year Architecture students have spent their fall term at Waterloo’s studio in Trastevere, one of the oldest and most picturesque neighbourhoods in the eternal city. And now our Rome campus is expanding to accommodate larger undergraduate classes in Architecture and allow for more graduate offerings. Other academic programs may also make use of the space in the future.
