Haifa is very safe. It’s a mixed city where everyone lives in co-existence and the general atmosphere is very good. On the campus itself we have security guards and security measures 24/7 so it feels extremely safe. Haifa itself is located far from the places you hear about on the news

Now, as for the city itself, the city is very lifeful full with young people and we have many places to go out to such as downtown, the beach, museums, public events and more. So, it is not boring at all!
