  • Wonderful location. Panoramic view of the dome of the rock. A big library all functioning well. Free wifi connection. Kind staff.

  • I would love to do an off campus intership for a year or two.... I didn't care to much for their dorm rooms, but the campus itself is amazing.

  • מבנה הבניינים מסובך, לא ברור איפה נקודות שירות ציבוריים. One of the best universities in Israel with the most beautiful landscape in the world

  • Very nice people I met here. I asked them to translated some Hebrew text and they did so immediately. Thank you very much for help.

  • I had my B.A there. Awesome university. Still has a lot of room to be improved.
