The University is one of the seventh leading universities. The three attractions are the view from the 30th floor of the the north east of the country, the museum that offers archeology and art and an old boat from Jesus time.You can combine the visit with the trip to the Druze villages Usafeia and Daliat El Carmel.

I attended the Hebrew Language Summer Ulpan program...what an incredible experience! The University is located on the top of Mount Carmel in Haifa, where the summer is quite bearable and the views are breathtaking. The program for Hebrew is very well-run, intense, challenging, stimulating, and the atmosphere is quite conducive to learning. The faculty and staff are most helpful and... More

Other than the beautiful view from the top of Mt. Carmel, not a lot can be said about this university. It is always overshadowed by the much more superior Technion, also located in Haifa.

I spent a semester as a student at the University of Haifa. Though it is technically not an attraction, it has some of the most beautiful vistas and views of the Port of Haifa. The Hecht Museum is not to be missed. It is at the top of the mountain, Mt. Carmel. It can get pretty windy but you can't... More

I used to be a student there and it's a nice place and except the fact that it's the highest place in Haifa and has an amazing view, there is nothing you can do there.

Haifa University is a well known university in Israel, I visited it often when I lived in Haifa. It's on top of the mountain so it's worth a visit for outside visitors just for the incredible view and fresh air.
