CBRL Kenyon Institute Jerusalem (KI)

The Kenyon Institute (KI) hostel re-opened its hostel in March 2022 after the lifting of most travel and health restrictions related to the global COVID-19 pandemic that had prevented hosting public events or receiving guests.

The KI dormitory has six rooms capable of hosting up to ten guests, available at affordable rates to members – 3 shared rooms, 2 singles and a room for a couple. We have two communal bathrooms, a dorm common room, laundry facilities and a common kitchen. Some rooms also have sinks.

The KI aims to provide a comfortable and secure facility for our residents capable of fostering a climate conducive to productive study, community building and leisure. Residents are expected to abide by a code of conduct when in residence.

Due to the security situation, we are not accepting bookings at the current time.

KI Library

The KI library is open by appointment, please email: [email protected].

The KI library was recently renovated to provide more workspace and improve the security of our unique collection.

The KI library is temporarily closed due to the current security situation.

Other KI Facilities

The KI has upgraded other aspects of its facilities during the ‘Covid-19’ closures. We now have a 12-person teleconference/meeting room; a podcast recording studio and additional project workstations with fibre optic internet. The lower storage room has also been renovated to accommodate project workspace. The central library hall will also be able available to host lectures and seminars for a limited audience.

Overall these renovations aim to equip the KI with the necessary physical and digital infrastructure and equipment for realising a new ‘hub’ vision, that increases research and networking activity, while also generating revenue from rental of new spaces and equipment.

If you are interested in any of these spaces to run your activity please contact us to discuss your ideas at the following e-mail address: [email protected].
