Students in the M.Sc. programs typically reside in one of the student dormitory buildings located on the Faculty of Agriculture campus. The campus is located on a main street in the city of Rehovot, 55 kilometers southwest of the main campus of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and 30 kilometers southeast of Tel Aviv. Outside the main entrance to the campus students have full access to most of their living needs within walking distance. There is abundant public transportation and taxi service for students to travel around the city and to all parts of the country.
The dormitories are standard for Israeli and visiting students alike, and are within short walking distance to all classrooms and facilities on campus. A few options (of varying costs) are offered: a single room, a double room shared by two students, or an apartment unit shared by four to five students. If a student is able to afford off-campus accommodations, they should feel free to rent a room or an apartment in the area. These are generally more expensive and at a greater distance from classrooms and other facilities on campus.
Single and double rooms contain a small refrigerator, bed, cupboard, desk and chair for each occupant, and share a large communal kitchen and dining area with the residents of the building. Multiple bathroom and shower facilities are shared by all rooms on each floor. The apartment unit contains its own kitchen, shower, restrooms and living area. All rooms have air-conditioning. Dormitory rooms are equipped with basic furniture; household items, such as bedding, towels and cooking utensils are not provided. Students in the International M.Sc. Program have the option of purchasing the basic household items through the Division for External Studies before their arrival.
