Research support services

Conference and seminar facilities

The British School at Rome is a superb environment for facilitating scholarly exchange. From a small colloquium to a major conference: we have a lecture theatre, meeting rooms, break out space and entertaining areas all enhanced by conference support which truly understands the needs of academics – because that’s what we are.

Permits and site visits

Many libraries, archives, collections and monuments in Italy are not open to the public. The British School at Rome is often able to gain access for our scholars, artists and residents wanting to visit a closed or restricted site.

If you are coming to the BSR specifically to access a particular site you are strongly encouraged to contact the Permissions Officer, Stefania Peterlini as early as possible.

Memorandums of understanding

The British School at Rome proudly celebrates its long established links with world-leading museums and academic institutions and has signed formal memorandums of understanding with some of these to exploit our complementary expertise in future opportunities for research.
