Why stay with us?

The BSR exists to faciltate world-class academic research and creative practice.

Staying at the BSR helps scholars and artists get the maximum advantage from their time in Rome – whether that is a few days or nine months.

The advantages of staying at the BSR include:

  • 24hr access to the Library
  • Residents-only study desks within the Library
  • Laundry, kitchen and recreational facilities
  • Artists’ workshop
  • Free Wi-Fi in all rooms
  • Printing, copying and scanning facilities
  • Free local telephone calls
  • Support to visit sites and facilities not generally open to the public (success not guaranteed but we will try!)
  • Opportunity to attend site visits and excursions exclusively organised for residents (travel/admission charges may apply)
  • Dining with other scholars and experts from disparate fields – convivially interdisciplinary
  • Opportunity to invite guests to dine in the BSR
