5.0/5
Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Actually, I would consider living off campus for the experience, but the dormitories are a safe and secure environment and also allow for easy participation in student activities.

The dorms are more like apartments. The rooms are either doubles or singles. There is a kitchen space and a living room. The number of bathrooms and fridges depend on the number of rooms attached to the common space (this ranges from 2 to 8). There is no carpet (this is common in Israeli houses!) but the tile keeps the apartment cooler during the hot summer months and is very easy to keep clean. There is no oven, but there is a gas stove. I loved living there!

I plan to return for graduate studies, and I am bringing a puppy with me. Pets are not allowed in on-campus housing, otherwise, that would be my first option.

While the dorms were not as glamerous as dorms in the US, I loved my room, and my appartment, and have no major complaints. When I first moved in, it was rather dirty and unkept. Aside from that, I really thought the meyonot were perfectly acceptable.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
The dorms are wonderful, but an apartment would allow slightly more privacy and maybe have thicker walls. I am afraid to move at night for fear of waking my roomates...

The only thing that would make the housing better is if the university could have a program by which the Israeli students had to interview and want to be a "buddy" of their potential overseas roommate - to ensure that students would get placed with roommates who would take the time to get to know them and show them around.
