University Housing

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. 

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 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 single bed, desk, closet, and shelves. Please note the following: You must bring with you sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels as well as any other linens needed for your room. The dormitories will provide you with a hotplate and a refrigerator. Any other appliances and utensils can be brought with you, or purchased during your first week in Haifa.

Located in the dormitories complex are self-service laundry rooms and a grocery store. All public spaces in the dormitories have WIFI Internet connections. 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.

Roommate Discussion

We recommend you sit down with all of your roommates, individually or in a group, and discuss the following items in detail.  We encourage you to keep notes and revisit these conversations if necessary!  The Madrichim are always available to assist you with housing concerns.

 

NOISE
  • What are your schedules? When are roommates in and out of the apartment?
  • What are acceptable noise levels in the living area and in individual rooms?
CLEANING
  • What chores need to be done? How often? How are they divided? Who keeps track? 
  • What if I don’t have a chance to do my chore?
  • Who is responsible for buying cleaning supplies?
  • Discuss standards of cleanliness and which cleaning supplies should be used:
    • For the living areas
    • In the kitchen
    • In the shared bathrooms (Federman)
PERSONAL PROPERTY 
  • Which items are shared between the roommates? Do I need to ask each time I use something?
    • Food
    • Household supplies:  toilet paper, paper towels/napkins, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies.
    • Kitchen supplies:  dishes, pots, and pans, utensils
    • Kitchen equipment: toaster oven, microwave, etc
    • Electrical equipment: TV/Video/DVD/Stereo - when may these items be used?
GUESTS

You should always notify your roommates of anticipated guests!  Remember that even if your roommates agree to host them, overnight guests must be approved in advance by the house mother. 

 

OTHER ISSUES 

What is expected with respect to locking apartment and room doors?

How will we communicate with each other for messages, questions, etc? 

Residents of Talia:  When is the hot water heater (dud) turned on? Is there a timer?  (Hot water is available at all times in Federman)

We recommend that you give your roommates your cell phone number and store their contact information in your phone.
