Beer-Sheva & The Negev Region

BGU is located in Be'er Sheva, Israel, which is known as the capital of the Southern Region - the Negev. The city boasts a diverse population of 200,000 people, and over 50% of the city's population is under the age of thirty-five, making it an ideal location to experience the young and vibrant life of contemporary Israel.

BGU's Be'er Sheva campus is known as being the most vibrant, social, diverse, and active campus in Israel, while the city still has a relatively low cost of living.

Be'er-Sheva's location in southern Israel means it is surrounded by gorgeous desert views, but also an easy hour-long train ride away from Tel-Aviv and an hour bus ride from Jerusalem.
