Question
Is there a place to study?
Answer
The university has many facilities for self-studying.

A list of computer labs is available here. There is also a link to their real-time availability inside.

If you just want to study, Beit-haStudent has two rooms for that purpose, one on floor 1, and one in the basement.

Of course, when the library is open, you can study on all floors.

Finally, often classes are not taken for teaching in older bulidings, such as 28 and 72.
