The Reichman University campus is designed to be an academic village, which encourages the pursuit of knowledge and is characterized by a tranquil atmosphere, broad lawns, decorative flowerbeds, fountains, and outdoor sculptures. Lecture halls and classrooms are equipped with innovative, state-of-the-art teaching facilities. Visitors find it difficult to believe that the campus was formerly an army base.

It's hard to believe that we're celebrating our 27th anniversary. It seems as though only yesterday the campus was an army base, and now – a leading international academic institution, with 10 schools and numerous academic and research achievements, celebrating 27 years of achievement.


This is a fitting time to pause, be transported on the wings of nostalgia and recall what was once here: which building was erected on the ruins of the military kitchen, which antiaircraft simulator disappeared at the dead of night, and for what purpose, or what hides in the old hangar?


This is also the time to share once more our gratitude to all those who contributed and helped make Reichman University exceptionally successful in the field of higher education in Israel – transforming it into the academy for tomorrow's leaders.

More Buildings

  • Ofer-Arazi Building

  • Radzyner-Sustainablity Building


    The building bears the distinct fingerprint of architect Moshe Tzur who tends to "break" his buildings - this building is made up of three different blocs.

  • Ivcher-Tiomkin Building


    During construction, Reichman University became involved in the idea of the Academy of the Future, and whereas the original plans included sloping classrooms, it was decided that there would be need for "regular" (straight floored).
