To help you navigate daily campus life here are some guidelines that are important to know:

Presenting ID at Campus Entrance

An official ID card with photo must be presented upon entering the university gates. For this purpose, you may use an identity card, passport, driver’s license or digital student card – the Bar-Ilan App

The Bar-Ilan App

The Bar-Ilan University App brings together all the information students need in the palm of their hand. Use the app to access your class and exam schedules, check grades, get updates and notifications about events, navigate the campus and connect directly to the university website and social networks. With the Bar-Ilan App, there’s no need to carry around your student card – the app serves as a convenient digital student card, which provides easy access to student services at Bar-Ilan.

Course Schedule

Using the INBAR personal information system, you may view your course schedule, which will provide the location – the building and room number for frontal courses; and will make note of those courses taught only via Zoom.

In order to check vacation days and holidays, you can consult the academic calendar for 2022-2023. Pay close attention to the messages received periodically about study breaks due to ceremonies and special events.  

Course Changes

The INBAR course registration system will be open for changes from October 26 – November 9, 2022. After that, changes will not be possible. A detailed message will be sent by email and will also be updated on the INBAR system.

English Courses

Students who started their undergraduate studies in the academic year 2021-2022 or 2022-2023 and have an exemption from English as a foreign language, are required to take English courses.

Orientation Desks and Campus Map

During the first week of studies, there will be information desks at four campus gates: Ono Gate 40, Geha Gate 30, Dkalim Gate 5 and Gate 2. The desks will operate Sundays through Thursdays, from 7:30 am to 2:00 pm. On Fridays, one information station will operate at Gate 2 from 7:30 am to 10:30 am.
