Opening an Israeli Bank Account

All students coming to Technion International are required to open an Israeli bank account. This enables the Technion’s Student Accounts Department to charge you for tuition (undergraduate students), housing (dorms), as well as electricity, water and internet, which will be charged according to your usage. All charges will be deducted directly from your bank account.

If you or the person responsible for your payments already has an Israeli bank account, you will not need to open a new one.

During the first week at Technion, all freshmen students must open an Israeli bank account and sign all the forms mentioned below, as well as the promissory note, in front of Technion’s legal advisors. This meeting will be coordinated by Technion International.

All students must complete the following forms:

  1. Tuition and other fees declaration for Technion International students
  2. Promissory note
  3. Authorization to debit a bank account
  4. Authorization contract for residence in the student dormitories

All the forms must be submitted together to the Technion Student Accounts Department.

Programming Fees

The following are descriptions of several common fees. The list is not inclusive, and all fees are subject to change without notice.

Rent is divided into two periods: 1st-15th and 16th–end of the month, regardless of your day of arrival.

Campus fees: 570 NIS for the winter semester/485 NIS for the spring semester.

Deposit: All students will be charged 800 NIS as a deposit fee. The Technion Student Accounts Department will return your deposit once you have completed your clearance procedure.
