Security w723

Technion International takes the safety and well-being of its students very seriously.

The university operates a 24-hour monitoring system that includes a network with security guards stationed at the university entrances and security units patrolling the campus grounds at all times. Although there are occasional security tensions in Israel, in the nearly 85 years of its existence, Technion has never suffered a security breach. International students are provided with updated security information and instructions about staying safe during their orientation program and throughout the year. It is mandatory that every student rents a cellphone so that they can be contacted at all times. Organized trips around Israel offered throughout the year are run in conjunction with the relevant security authorities. We want our students to get to know Israel, feel comfortable, and stay safe while traveling on their own, which is why we suggest that they let our administrative staff know of their plans to leave Haifa so that we can assist them in their travel plans. In the event of an emergency we contact our students as soon as possible to make sure that they are safe. Our students’ safety and security is our top priority.
