Housing

International students may request on-campus housing on our vibrant Haifa campus in modern student dorms, which include modern six-person apartment units that consist of a shared kitchen and bathroom. Bedrooms are shared, equipped with 2 beds, 2 closets and 2 desks. No linen or kitchenware is provided. Dorm rooms are limited and must be arranged at least three months in advance through Technion International. On-Campus housing is not guaranteed but all students accepted to the program may apply. More information about housing can be found here.

Student Life

International students will easily integrate to student life at Technion, which supports a multicultural student community. On campus you’ll have access to a wide range of sports facilities (including an Olympic sized pool), and participate in social and cultural programs, lectures and trips to enrich your study abroad experience. You’ll be invited to an orientation day, designed to get you acquainted with peers, student life and living essentials in Israel.

Orientation Day

Technion International also provides a comprehensive Orientation day designed to familiarize students with the campus and surrounding neighborhoods, and to provide a general guide to student life in Israel. Orientation presents you with such “survival tips” as acquiring a student card, email account and internet access code, opening an Israeli bank account, getting a cell phone plan, and getting around the sprawling Technion campus and your dormitory.
