The University of Haifa’s academic presence plays a leading role in the development of the vast potential of Israel’s northern region. A major multi-campus expansion, the addition of new academic disciplines and global partnerships, are charting an exciting new course for the University’s future which will transform it into a regional and national powerhouse, serving as the catalyst for economic expansion and political stabilization.

An agreement has been signed with the world-renowned Rambam Health Care Campus, the largest medical centre in Israel’s north, to build a joint 20-storey Health Discovery Tower in Haifa.


This partnership will propel a quantum leap for the University in the fields of biotechnology and health sciences.

Academic merger agreements are underway with highly respected institutes, ORT Braude College in Karmiel and the NB Haifa School of Design. Both institutes will become University of Haifa Faculties operating from their current locations. Academic offerings will include engineering, architecture and design.

The University of Haifa has also established a Shanghai campus with the prestigious East China Normal University, funded by Chinese investment.


The main Mount Carmel campus, with a student body of 20,000, overlooks the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Lebanon to the north and the Galilee to the east. Its geographic location provides a unique backdrop for many novel interdisciplinary programs.

Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, is well known for the tolerance and understanding that exists between its citizens. The multicultural population of the region is reflected in the inspiring cultural mosaic of students and faculty at the University of Haifa.
