On campus, residents can join our soccer team to practice here on our own field and compete with other soccer teams that are part of the Clericus Cup. The Clericus Cup is a soccer league that organizes a soccer tournament aimed at seminarians and priests enrolled in colleges, universities, boarding schools and pontifical seminaries. 


The exercise room is equipped with the latest cardio and strength-training equipment from Technogym, including a treadmill, exercise bike, elliptical machine, weight machine, pull-up/abdominal-crunch tower, incline bench, free weights, bars, dumbbells, kettlebells and yoga mats. The room provides a space for the residents to maintain their physical fitness as part of their daily routine of prayer, work and study.


Twice a year, the residents of the Collegio gather for an outside BBQ, a traditional meal of hamburgers, salads and potato chips with soft drinks. Our volunteers set up tables in the garden in the back of the cloister and spend the evening grilling hamburgers for the enjoyment of the community.


In their free time, Collegio residents are encouraged to spend time visiting the many museums, art galleries and historical sites that Rome has on offer. If you want to travel for the day or the weekend, the railway system in Italy provides convenient and low-cost transportation to many other famous Italian cities.

Volleyball and Swimming

The Collegio has volleyball equipment that residents are free to use. The large swimming pool is opened during the warmer months, generally from June to October. It is equipped with patio furniture and outside shower facilities with small dressing rooms.


The Collegio reserves a safe space for parking bicycles, which are becoming increasingly popular as Rome expands its system of dedicated bike paths. With a bike it is easy to travel to any of the large Roman parks such as the Villa Borghese gardens, Villa Pamphili or Villa Ada Savoia. The ancient road from Rome to the sea, the Appian Way, is 10 minutes away. Blocks away from Sant’Anselmo, cyclists can take the ramp to La Regina Ciclarum, The Queen of the Bike Lanes, which follows the Tiber River to span the entire metropolitan area and well beyond. Many adventures and discoveries await the cyclist in Rome: All of these are historical, fascinating destinations.
