This modern campus built on top of mount Carmel ridge provides excellent views of northern Israel. Take the elevators to the top of the tower (30th floor) and you will be stunned.

extremely bad staff, once you pay the money, no body will help you in anything. All they care about is money especially the international school - Uplan.

Haifa University is a big campus located over Haifa, at the base of Mount Karmel. When you have the chance to visit, go for it, the trails near the university, the view over Haifa from the Tower, everything recommend it as a attraction

I am just writing this review to point out to visitors to Haifa that I can't imagine a more beautifully-positioned site for a major university. Spectacular views from high on Mount Carmel. (Great library, too!)

The view of Haifa bay can be seen from many places at the university, and it is stunning. If you are coming by bus, be careful which you take leaving. You may not want the "milk train".
