Arriving in Ben Gurion University 


Arriving In Ben Gurion University: 

Buildings #98 and #90 are indicated by red circles on the map, and are located within about 50 meters of each other.

BGU campus is easily accessed by all trains arriving in Be'er Sheva.
Depart at Be'er Sheva North / University station.
Once exiting the train station, go right over the pedestrian bridge to the campus gate.
Inside campus, continue straight for about 300m and then turn right with the road. You will need to walk about 100 meters, when you will see both buildings in front of you - Building #98 will be on your left, and Building #90 will be on your right. 

If arriving by bus to BGU campus, you will most likely depart on Rager St., near the main entrance to campus (Gate of Knowledge). 
From the main gate, go straight ahead. Pass 2 roundabouts, and you will see Building #98 on your left. To get to Building #90, you need to walk a bit further (50 meters or so), and Building #90 will then be on your left

It is possible to arrive by car.  Parking on campus is severely limited, if you do not have a car entry permit it is possible to use the (inexpensive) parking lot adjacent to the sports center on the corner of Uri Zvi and Ben-Gurion streets.
