Braude’s dormitories are modern, spacious, comfortable and equipped with a kitchen. Study abroad students live alongside Israeli students. The cafeterias offer reasonably priced meals throughout the day.
The safety and security of the students is taken very seriously. All students receive a comprehensive security orientation up on their arrival. Guards and security teams are on duty around the clock. All student activities, on and off campus, meet the strictest security requirements.
During the academic program in Israel, students will be staying in the dormitories, sharing living space with fellow students. Every dormitory unit has a kitchen, which is equipped with a refrigerator, a hot plate for cooking, and other kitchen accessories.
During week days there are several food services available for students on campus – vegetarian and meat based. On Saturdays, the food services are closed.
For the students’ convenience, we have provided the following price list of common food products that you may want to buy while living in the dormitories. As you might expect, the prices vary somewhat from store to store, and the lowest prices can be typically found in outdoor markets. Prices in supermarkets may be higher.
The table above lists price ranges of typical products. Eating habits are personal, and every student manages their food consumption individually. However, from experience, we have noticed that students who used the kitchen in the dormitory unit during the study abroad program for cooking, spent between $220-$280 USD per month for food.
The information here is presented to help students to budget their financial resources during the study abroad program in Israel. Students who are planning to travel in Israel during the program, should consult with internet sites and experienced travelers in Israel, to gauge the cost of travelling in Israel.
On campus learning facilities are spacious and comfortable and equipped with today’s most advanced technology. Computerized libraries, up-to-date laboratories and computer labs are available, and WiFi access is widely available.
Braude’s modern sports facilities include a gym that features aerobic and weight-training machines, as well as tennis, basketball, volleyball courts, and a near-by swimming pool. Use of the sport facilities is free.
