John Cabot University Athletics Department cares about its students, and it wants to promote a healthy lifestyle among students even when they are far away from their home countries.
This is why we have thought about different activities to help you stay in shape while studying at JCU.
JCU FITNESS CENTER
Our JCU Fitness Center is open to all the enrolled students, and it is located in the Gianicolo Residence (Vicolo della Penitenza, 26). It is open Monday – Thursday from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm and Friday – Sunday from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.
At JCU Fitness Center, you will also have the chance to take part in many Fitness Classes. The classes are offered throughout the day and taught by professional sports instructors. You can check the detailed schedule HERE.
JCU Fitness Center is free of charge, but an Italian physical is required to attend the gym and participate to all the activities. All the new students will have the chance to do a physical directly at JCU by reserving their spot at the Athletics Table during Orientation days. The cost of the physical is €20.
For the more competitive ones, JCU Athletics also organizes a 5-on-5 Soccer Intramural Tournament where you can test your skills while having fun with your friends. The game takes place at 7:00 pm at Trastevere Stadium (Via Vitellia, 50). Meeting point is set up at 6:20 pm in front of Tiber Campus. Here’s the DIRECTIONS to the soccer field in case you want to come on your own.
As part of our Outdoor Educational Program, we also offer different sports trips. This is a nice way to stay in shape while travelling and discovering the natural beauties of Italy.
On July 22nd, we will head to Bracciano Lake for an adventurous Sailing Day Trip.
You can sign up and find all the information about at the trip at the following LINK.
Remember that you can meet us during Orientation days (from Thursday, June 28th until Saturday June 30th) at the Athletics Table at Tiber Cafè where our staff will be more than happy to help you and provide you with all the information you will need.
