“A boring campus. Nothing more.”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

I haven't got the faintest idea as to why the campus of the Technion is regarded as an attraction.
It's a university campus, period. And a boring one, too.
Having spent four miserable years in this institution and campus, my only recommendation would be not to bother with it and skip it as a destination, of course.

“A tranquil yet busy university”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I was lucky to stay in the Faculty guest house in the Technion for three nights (a lovely facility) and had the opportunity to stroll around the university grounds several times. Even though there are more than 12,500 students here (4000 of whom live on campus), there is a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. There are gardens and parks to stroll through (with some very friendly cats!), and various cafes to stop and have a drink while people watching. A nice place to visit when in Haifa.

“The oldest university in Israel celebrated 100 years this year”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The Visitor's Center at Haifa Technion is most informative of the amazing research done in various scientific fields, resulting in students coming from all over the world to study there. Here is where you discover the incredible medical research that Israel excels in, and which we ALL benefit from!
