Spouse or Family Information

Married students can have their own room on campus with the benefits of community, shared meals (but also shared bathrooms usually). Another option is to rent an apartment in Jerusalem. Spouses pay only the lodging and entrance fees and are able to go on all the field trips, typically, including Egypt and Jordan. It is a most exciting and fun environment and non-student spouses usually have as good a time or better than the spouse that is studying. Beyond the Bible things, Israel is a most beautiful and wonderful country with many recreational outlets.

* Admission is contingent upon current U.S. State Department travel advisories for the Middle East.
