Facilities

Communal rooms

There are many communal rooms on the campus that are open to everyone (see Maps for their locations).

Here are the basic rules for all of them:

  1. Put the key back in its box as soon as you finish using it! Not in an hour, not a day later. Other people also want to use the space, so be kind.​

  2. The Studio and the Sport rooms have google calendars! So whoever wants to use it can book the room. PLEASE use the calendars to prevent unnecessary misunderstandings and double booking!

  3. This is NOT a free zone for children !! In all the rooms there are expensive equipment and some dangerous things (like weights, scissors, knives, etc.) so children are only allowed with parent supervision!!

  4. Close all windows, AC and lights.

  5. Keep the rooms clean and tidy for the next person (and, please, DO NOT leave the room unattended and unlocked!)

    • Corona time update: There are sanitizing sprays in ALL the rooms so please make sure to wipe the equipment you used!​

If you see something broken or that require maintenance in the rooms, please let the council know. 

The keys are in keyboxes next to each room. To know the codes, please check your emails or email the student council (councilsb@post.bgu.ac.il)
