Tel Aviv University Dorms
On-campus housing is available to TAU International students upon request. Please note there is a shortage of dormitories, and it is not possible to guarantee that you will receive a room, even if you make an early request. Requests for dormitory accomodations are made during the application process; applicants interested in staying in the dormitories should indicate their interest on their online application form. Requests for dorm reservations will not be considered until the $1000 confirmation fee for enrollment to the MAMES program has been paid. Dorm requests are evaluated on a first-come, first-serve basis, according to the date which the confirmation fee was paid. 

All housing requests are processed by TAU International and not by the MAMES Office. Please direct questions to Housing TAU International.

Off Campus Housing
If you will not be living in the university dormitories, we recommend that you find somewhere to stay for about 2-5 weeks while you search for a long-term rental.

Short-term Apartment Rentals
If you do not want to stay in the dorms during your first weeks in Tel Aviv, you can arrange to rent an apartment temporarily. One one way to cut costs is to connect with a few of your classmates and arrange to stay in a temporary apartment together for a few weeks.
Here are some resources for temporary rentals:
