Studies During Academic Year 2021-2022

Information on studies in classrooms, libraries and labs, Green Pass guidelines, and all campus services


With the onset of the new academic year and the resumption of studies in classrooms, lecture halls, laboratories and public areas on campus, we have gathered for you all the information about study spaces, services and facilities on the Bar-Ilan University campus.

According to the government’s decision, all universities are required to act in accordance with the Green Pass regulations, which allow entry to campus for those who are vaccinated, recovered, or who present negative COVID-19 test results (taken no more than 72 hours prior to campus entry).  At Bar-Ilan University, this requirement applies to all entering the university, including employees and lecturers. Information on Green Pass Restrictions.


Classroom and Online Studies

Most of the studies during Academic Year 2021-2022 are planned to be held in BIU campus classrooms, lecture halls, laboratories and libraries. Only for those students who are unable to come to campus, the university will make learning accessible via live broadcast of lectures or through lecture recordings. Here is an instructional video on how to view these lectures.

All 29 campus libraries are open for your use. They can also be used as study spaces for group discussions (in designated areas) or individual study, including connection to recorded and broadcast lectures and e-learning courses. To locate the libraries, you can use the campus map. You must book in advance library study areas via the library system.

In some programs, mainly for a master’s degree but also for some undergraduate programs, online and or e-learning courses have also been incorporated.

In addition, open-air study areas are situated in four locations on campus: the Bob Shapell Park across from the minimarket; under the bridge in front of Building 1004; under a gazebo across from the Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center; and in the plaza of the Faculty of Law complex near Building 300.

The Bar-Ilan app – also includes a digital student card that allows you to conveniently enter various areas on campus, including the libraries, without having to carry a physical card with you. To download the app


New Students

Many of the undergraduate and laboratory courses including hands-on experience will be frontal, in order to allow new students to adapt more easily, while safeguarding their health.

An orientation to acquaint new students with academia was held on Zoom on Monday, September 13. The session presented methods for effective and beneficial learning, and practical tools for improving learning skills from the very first stage, in order to strengthen self-confidence and to improve the sense of success in studies. The session included a lecture, practical examples and tips. Time was also allocated for discussion, questions and answers. 

In addition to this meeting, the Bar-Ilan Student Union, together with the Office of the Dean, invites new students to join the “Soft Landing” program, in which students who have already begun their studies will serve as mentors to new students throughout the academic year. To register for the project

For questions and more details about the project, you can contact the BIU Student Union on Facebook or by phone (messages only) – 03-5317476.

Construction along the Light Rail Route

Work to pave the light rail tracks in the area near Bar-Ilan University is underway and is being carried out in full coordination with the university and NTA (the government agency which oversees the light rail project in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area), to minimize disruptions to campus life.  At this stage, the work is being carried out between the Bar-Ilan junction and what was once the entrance to the Economics parking lot (the parking lot is closed).  It has been arranged with NTA that Gate 1 (the main vehicular entrance) will remain open for the entry of vehicles.
