Adjacent to the first new building, the student center will include an auditorium, equipped to house conferences and college ceremonies. On top of the auditorium there will be a large balcony with a panoramic view of Jerusalem.
To complement other student services, we believe that sports and exercise are important to the success of its students. The student center will be designed to include a large variety of options. The complex will span two floors and include a full size basketball court (adaptable to other sports and exercise classes), fitness rooms, showers, and storage space for equipment. The complex will also include a cafeteria, the main library, and common areas.
Ø The sports facility has the potential of increasing revenue for the college and interaction with the residents of the adjacent Ramat Beit Hakerem neighborhood, by allowing them to purchase memberships for use of the facilities of the center and the library.
The auditorium will be built for special events and lectures for large audiences. Its stadium style seating will accommodate 500 people. It will be equipped with equipment for screening of various multi-media presentation materials. Tailor made sound and lighting systems will be installed with controls to suit the event or presentation. Special care will be taken to make the auditorium acoustically sound.
