In January 1987, after years of occupying rented quarters, Neve Yerushalayim moved to its magnificent new campus in Har Nof, Jerusalem’s largest modern religious suburb. The beautifully landscaped campus is situated on an elevated six-acre plot of land offering a tranquil atmosphere and breathtaking views of the Jerusalem hills.

Twelve buildings currently occupy the campus. Students in the various programs are housed in eight fully-furnished residences and take their meals in the dining hall that is equipped with a modern kitchen. Three academic buildings provide classrooms, computer and science laboratories, libraries, and administrative offices. One of the academic buildings, recently completed, serves as a science and arts complex and includes an advanced audio-visual center.

Other facilities on the campus are an amphitheater that provides a spectacular setting for outdoor lectures and performances, a gym, and a synagogue that serves both the students and community residents. Future building plans call for a large auditorium and a sports and health complex for both the students and the community.

Bnos Avigail students are housed in two student residences located on the Neve Yerushalayim campus. Each residence contains six apartments and each student apartment has four dormitory rooms, a kitchen, washroom facilities including showers, and a laundry room for hand washables. (Automatic washers and dryers are available on campus.)

Dormitory life is friendly, broadening, and educational. Although students come from various countries and walks of life, they work together to create a harmonious home-like atmosphere.
