The Hebrew University of Jerusalem reopened the Stern dormitories this week after many years in which they stood empty. The renovated dorms will serve as a home for Hebrew University students at the Ein Kerem campus. The launch ceremony was attended by Hebrew University President Prof. Menahem Ben-Sasson, Vice President and Director General of the University, Billy Shapira and Dean of Students Prof. Udi Shavit.

The University invested NIS13 million in an extensive renovation of the two Stern dormitory buildings, and in recent weeks almost 200 students at the Ein Kerem campus took up residence in them. The 64 apartments will be home to 170 students in single units and ten couples in family units. Living conditions include furniture, air-conditioning in every room, new showers, bathrooms and kitchens, aluminum windows and metal security doors. In addition, the electrical, plumbing and hot water systems were replaced.

Hebrew University President Prof. Menahem Ben-Sasson said, ''This was one of my important decisions as president of the university, which will benefit the residents of the Kiryat Yovel neighborhood and the community of students who, through this project, will have access to quality housing and a high standard of living.''
