Experience the Eternal City at the University of St. Thomas' Bernardi Campus, located on the west bank of the Tiber River at Lungotevere delle Armi in Rome, Italy.
Purchased by St. Thomas in 1999, the Bernardi Campus provides housing to St. Thomas students and others participating in academic and summer programs and offers accommodations for overnight guests. Situated in the Prati neighborhood, the campus is near both the center of Rome and Vatican City.
The university is committed to the development of the student through a liberal arts education.
Off-Campus Student Services fosters this commitment by providing hospitality, information, programs, resources and services to all students with an emphasis on commuters, non-traditional students, and students who live in the immediate neighborhood.
Our services develop community, success in academic and personal development and opportunities for cultural awareness and leadership development. We believe hospitality, support and information are important in order for undergraduate and graduate students to have a full campus experience.
STAR is the student programming board for the University. We are allocated 60% of the student activity fee and use that money to plan programs in the areas of lectures, music, entertainment, expeditions, community building, cultural celebration, and various special events.
Our goal is to provide an opportunity for students to interact and develop relationships outside of the classroom walls, but still within the St. Thomas community.
STAR is comprised of 16 student intern positions and a general STAR Committee that all students are welcome to join.
St. Thomas Activities and Recreation (STAR) builds a strong campus community by enhancing current traditions and creating new programs.
As a student organization, our objective is to encourage a balanced collegiate experience by coordinating student events that create social and educational opportunities.
