The University of Dallas Rome Program has arranged a group flight for all Romers. Students will rendezvous in a hub city on flights from their hometown airports, which will be arranged by the Rome Office from the information provided on flight forms and will be calculated into the cost of a ticket. Due to the world situation it is required that all Romers take the group flight and travel on regular group flight dates unless they have a good reason not to. Students that wish to opt out of the group flight are not allowed to purchase airline tickets until they submit their waiver request and it has been approved by the office.
Please review these flight facts for complete details on flight procedures for Rome.
