Nestled in the heart of the Eternal City, the Rome Global Gateway offers students and faculty a veritable feast of art, architecture, history, and religion, all just steps from its iconic location.

If tradition is at the heart of Notre Dame, there is no better place to understand it than Rome. While the city is dotted with ancient ruins, Biblical sites, and Renaissance works, so too does it contain renown universities, libraries, and archives which can be critical to progress, scholarship, and understanding.

For guests at the Rome Global Gateway, library partnerships, internship opportunities, and community service events await. Lectures and colloquia on topics ranging from migration, to nonlinear analysis, to relationships between the Qur’an and the Bible are attended by scholars from around the world. And the growing list of researchers and visitors at the Via Ostilia facility prove that perhaps all roads do indeed lead to Rome.
