Beyond the Classroom
Along with the various services provided by the Student Union, such as legal aid, dormitories, scholarships for community involvement, housing assistance grants, organizing overseas delegations and more, the Student Union also works to enrich the social and recreational dimensions of student life. It operates three service centers throughout the campus where you can find out information and purchase discounted tickets to theater, recreation and Student Union events.
The Student Union organizes a variety of events on campus including, cultural and recreational activities: lectures as part of the "Culture Wednesday" program, Salsa dancing lessons on Thursday, in addition to operating several student clubs focusing on particular interests, including the Model United Nations Club, Debate Club, Green Club, Environmental Club, the LGBT club and more.
Entertainment on Campus
TAU aims to make its campus a central venue not only for rigorous academic research, but also a wide range of exciting cultural and social events. Music concerts, film screenings, art exhibitions, poetry readings, and many other activities are held on campus. These are open to TAU students, staff, and often the general public.
TAU Green Campus
In a milestone for environmentalism at TAU, the university was accredited in 2011 as a “green campus” by the Israeli government, in recognition of its efforts to create a more sustainable institution.
The accreditation is awarded to Israeli universities that implement programs in three key areas: academic degrees and courses in environmental studies (given by the Porter School of Environmental Studies), heightened resource efficiency through recycling and reduction of electricity and water use, and community-related projects that strengthen environmental awareness both on campus and off. Among the green innovations at TAU are more energy efficient lighting, the “Nature Campus” educational initiative, stands for the city of Tel Aviv’s new bicycle rental system, and a comprehensive plan for campus bicycle paths.
TAU’s support for sustainable projects on campus is further underscored by the Porter School of Environmental Studies’ new EcoBuilding. The EcoBuilding is designed to meet the highest standards of green building, and will demonstrate innovative environmental technologies.
