BIU Promises (Again) to Move Forward with New Dorms

univerdoors3_cAfter years of promises, Bar-Ilan University has finally began to move forward with a campus dormitory upgrade.

Although approved, and reapproved, at every Board of Trustees event for almost half a decade, the official tender was sent out last week. The plan focuses on renovating dormitory buildings in the southern campus (Wolfson, Banot Alef + Bet, Gaon, etc), building new dormitories in the northern campus – including a dormitory for secular students, and building a modern sports center with a gym and swimming pools.

This is just the beginning of a long, arduous, process, and while no timetable has been advanced yet – it is guaranteed to impact both the quality of life on-and-off campus, as well as bring down real estate property values in the area.
