We would like to welcome you to Technion.
Your contact person in the Physics Department is Ms. Avital Rosenthal, who will take care of arrangements for your arrival in Israel and at our Physics Department.
Forcheimer guest house
If you are staying at the Forchheimer Guest House, which is on the Technion campus, getting the room keycard depends on when you arrive:
- If you arrive between 8:00 and 15:30 from Sunday through Thursday, you should go directly to the Forchheimer Guest House to get the keycard.
- If you arrive at any other time, the keycard will be waiting for you at the Security Unit's office, located to the right of the main Technion gate. If you arrive by taxi, ask the driver to wait while you pick up the keycard, before continuing on to the guest house.
A continental breakfast can be bought at the H-Bar café in the Physics Department from 07:00, Friday and Saturday excluded. For a full breakfast, you can go to Greggs Café, which is to the right of the guest house after the Computer Science Building.
You can buy coupons for lunch at the Technion Faculty dining room, which is located in the same building as the guest house, at the reception desk of the guest house.
During Friday and Saturday, when no other restaurants on campus are open, you can buy meals at the swimming pool's cafeteria. You will find an entry permit for the swimming pool in your room.
Each room at the Forchheimer Guest House has a kitchenette with a refrigerator and microwave for your convenience. There is a minimarket on campus where you can buy the essentials.
You will find a map of the Technion in your room.
Your room key for Forchheimer allows you to enter Technion if you arrive by car.
To reach the Physics Department from the Forchheimer Guest House, please see Technion campus map.
Allenby guest house
The Allenby Guest House is situated at some distance from the Technion, but sometimes, when the on-campus guest house is full, we use it for our guests.
The address is the Kessel Building, 85 Allenby Street. The office is open until 18:00. After that, the night watchman will give you your room key. To reach Technion from the Kessel Building, you can take either a taxi or a No. 19 bus.
If you are staying at a hotel off campus, please contact Ms. Yodim with the exact details of your arrival so that she can make the necessary arrangements to bring you to Technion.
If you arrive at the Technion by taxi, ask the taxi driver to bring you to the Physics Department on the road between Electrical Engineering and Physics.
Your room at the hotel is booked on a bed and breakfast basis.
We recommend you ask the hotel staff for assistance regarding sites to visit, maps, and explanations about attractions near the hotel.
