Life in Central Israel

Bar Ilan University is located in Givat Shmuel, in the heart of central Israel. The student dorms are in the nearby neighborhood of Ramat Ef’al, centrally located between Ramat Gan and Kiryat Ono, and near a major bus stop, Aluf Sadeh. Students are just a 15 minute cab ride from downtown Tel Aviv, and an hour from Jerusalem; several buses each hour depart directly for both.
