Personal Information Website and App

The Hebrew University site and HUJIapp were designed to make it easier for students to obtain personal information from the University.

Once they have been admitted, students are given access to the website and to HUJIapp that is valid until their graduation.

Information available on this site includes: notice of admission, curriculum and grades, tuition, bursaries, loans and an option to view graded exam papers.

The site's homepage displays important messages and we recommend logging in frequently.

The information on HUJIapp includes: personal details, courses and grades, timetables, exam schedules, and tuition information.

Students can also contact various University services through the Contact system, from the site and through HUJIapp.

You can download the HUJIapp for cell phones and tablets at: http://new.huji.ac.il/hujiapp .

Access the site and HUJIapp using your ID number (8 digits, without the check digit) and your Personal Code.

 

Personal University Email Address - HujiMail

When you are admitted, the University provides you with a personal university Gmail account. This email remains available to students throughout their studies and official correspondence from the University is sent to this address.

All correspondence between the Hebrew University and the students is conducted through this email box only.

The email address is also printed on Voucher No. 1 in the payment booklet and in the acceptance notification from the University.

The initial password for your new email account can be obtained from the Personal Information site. To login and set a new password, visit the site: http://mail.huji.ac.il

This email service provides students with an unlimited mailbox and cloud storage, along with other services, such as editing and sharing tools, calendar, and forms.
