PRINT THE FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS
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.
