Its diverse student body spans from all areas of Israel and many sectors of society – ranging from IDF soldiers, to Americans, to Ethiopian immigrants; from Haredim, to modern Orthodox Zionists, to the newly observant. Many students arrive at JCT immediately after completing their army service while others defer in order to later serve in as officers in their profession, numerous students are married with children. While the student body is eclectic, it is JCT’s unique mix that enables it to attract many men and women who may otherwise not be capable or interested in pursuing a high-level technology education.

JCT occupies three separate campuses, two of which are located in the heart of Jerusalem with the other campus located in Bnei Brak (near Tel Aviv). Each campus is easily accessible by public transportation and all are only a short ride from the center of town.

Lev Campus, the largest of the campuses, occupies 14 acres in the Givat Mordechai area. In addition to numerous classrooms, lecture halls, and laboratory buildings, Lev Campus has six separate dormitories / residence halls. The campus also features a large Beit Midrash as well as an extensive Judaic library. A student center on campus hosts a dining hall, a cafeteria, meeting rooms, and study halls. Givat Mordechai, a quiet neighborhood that hosts the renowned Chevron Yeshiva, and Yeshiva University’s Caroline and Joseph S. Gruss Institute, provides students with access to shuls, supermarkets and eateries.

Tal Campus occupies 5,100 square meters of rented space in Givat Shaul. In addition to classroom and laboratories, Tal Campus also offers a beautiful dormitory, a library and facilities for young mothers. JCT has recently been awarded land in Emek Zion, adjacent to JCT’s Lev Campus for men, where it is planning to build permanent facilities for Tal Campus.

Lustig Campus occupies space in Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv, and consists of classrooms and laboratories. The vast majority of students attending classes on this campus come from Haredi backgrounds.
