HISTORY AND LOCATION

Temple Mount at night.Mount Zion - Jerusalem - the Hinnom Valley, this is the unique location for our historic campus, home to Jerusalem University College for some 38 years. The Negev - the Dead Sea - Masada - Mt. Carmel - Megiddo - Bethlehem, are the unique locations for studies. The Temple Mount - the Jewish Quarter - Hezekiah's Tunnel - the Holy Sepulcher - the Mount of Olives - the Judean Wilderness and many other significant locations are yours to study and experience during your time at the university.

Formerly known around the world as the Institute of Holy Land Studies, and known widely in Israel as the American Institute of Holy Land Studies, the university college was founded in 1957 to provide an educational experience for students in which they would "study the Bible in the land of the Bible among the people of the Bible." The university college moved to its present location on Mount Zion, overlooking the Hinnom Valley, in 1967, soon after the Six-Day War. The historic grounds and buildings of the Bishop Gobat School, built in 1853, rest atop portions of the Herodian Wall with the site of the Essene Gate at one corner. 


History Video - A look back into the historical foundations of JUC and how the campus became located on Mt. Zion.  Click the photo to download the video in .wmv format.

Unique Location: Enlarge the Mt. Zion map (click on it) and you will see our location is within blocks of the room of the Last Supper.  The site of the Essene Gate is at the southern end of the campus property. You’re around the bend from the Old City of David and down the street from the House of Caiaphas.  On campus, you are overlooking the Valley of Hinnom and minutes from the Kidron Valley and the tunnel that Hezekiah built.
