This is the second campus of the University, built in the 1950's after the one on Mt. Scopus was closed. A modern facility in the heart of Jerusalem.

A great place to visit if you can get in. You will need full ID. Great views over the Old City and a beautiful campus as well.

It's worth the visit, it really is a beautiful campus and it's older than Israel itself! I do recomend that you come by if you have the chance.

A most successful addition to the Mt Scopus campus of the university. It was built when the other campus was cut off from Israel from 1947 to 1967. Today it houses mainly the physical sciences.
