| From Ben Gurion Airport

Arrive at Ben Gurion outside of Tel Aviv. After picking up your bags at Baggage Claim... Proceed through the green customs (nothing to declare) sign... And you will enter the arrivals hall... Then exit through door 2.  Straight ahead is the sign pointing to the sherut service to Jerusalem. There you will find a sherut waiting for you, 24-hours a day, to bring you directly to the JUC gate on Mt. Zion. Just tell the driver that you want to go to the American Institute on Mount Zion. If the driver has any questions (he shouldn't), he can call 052-823-3426 for directions.

Hover over each picture left to right for instructions.  Click to enlarge.

After picking up your bags at baggage claim, proceed under the green (nothing to declare) tcustoms sign to the arrival hall.  Exit through Door 2 and you will see the yellow sign pointing you right for sheruts to Jerusalem. 

Find a "Nesher Sherut" traveling to Jerusalem.  A sherut is a station to station taxi, which carries eight to ten passengers.  The driver will wait until the Sherut is filled before he leaves the airport.  The cost is aproximately $20 U.S. per person.  (A private taxi would cost over $100.00).


Ask the driver to take you to the American Institute on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, or the Institute of Holy Land Studies (In Hebrew HaMachon HaAmerikai). The driver will probably recognize these names better than he will recognize the name Jerusalem University College. 

In Jerusalem, the driver may need directions.  Print the map from the Related Information at the bottom of this page and carry it with you.  Tell the driver that the university is located near Jaffa Gate of the Old City, but outside the Old City wall.  He should turn right along the outside of the Old City wall, and continue to the end of the road (Tayellet Har Tsion).  Tell the driver there is room to turn around at the end of the road.  The university is at the end of this road, with a large sign in English and Hebrew.  The trip from the airport to the university takes about one to two hours.

Please be advised that at various times of the day or week the sherut may not bring the student all the way to the campus gate. You may be dropped off near Jaffa Gate so make sure you know how to walk along the walkway outside the Old City walls to JUC’s gate.

To call Jerusalem University College from anywhere in Israel, but outside Jerusalem, dial
02-671-8625.  To call the university from within Jerusalem, dial 671-8625.   To call the university’s 24 hour emergency telephone number from anywhere in Israel, dial 052-823-3426
