Students who study full-time in the International School are welcome to live in the student dormitories on campus. There are two dormitory complexes that are open to international students.
- Federman Dorms have modest apartments with three double rooms and a shared bathroom, kitchen, and living space.
- Talia Dorms have spacious apartments with six single rooms, each room with its own bathroom, and a shared kitchen and living space. Click here for a virtual tour of a standard Talia Dorm.
Students can choose which set of dormitories they would prefer. Please note that during our summer programs, our single rooms fill up quickly and students who request to live in the Talia dormitories will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis.
About 1,000 students live in the dorms at the University of Haifa, including students of all social, economic, religious, and ethnic backgrounds. The dormitory campus is fully integrated with Israeli students. Individual dorm suites may house both Israeli and/or International students. We will try our utmost to fulfill your accommodation requests.
All apartments in the dorms are single-sex. In your room you will be provided with a bed, desk, closet, and shelves as well as sheets, a blanket and a pillow. The kitchen comes equipped with a refrigerator and two stove-top burners. While dishes, utensils, and other appliances are not provided, most Israeli roommates are happy to share their kitchen supplies with their roommates.
Located in the dormitories complex are self-service laundry rooms and a grocery store. In addition, there is a "moadon" or "club" with a large-screen television which often hosts parties, workshops, lectures, and other activities.
During the academic year, only students who are enrolled full time in the International School are permitted to live in the dorms. All students enrolled in summer programs can also live in the dorms. While students are not required to live in the dormitories on campus, it is strongly encouraged. The dormitories allow you the opportunity to meet many Israeli students and have a more complete Israeli experience.
