From the Advancement Office

On behalf of Bethlehem University Tourism Institute (BUTI)

Work has already started on Phase One of the Bethlehem University Tourism Institute.

In 2012, Bethlehem University acquired a new facility located in the heart of Bethlehem city within a seven minute walk from its current campus. The acquisition of the extended site of some 12,000m2 increases the land and facilities of Bethlehem University by about 30%, representing a generational opportunity to significantly alleviate existing space pressures and expand educational offerings.

The Bethlehem University Institute of Hotel Management and Tourism is to be relocated to the extended site, expanded to incorporate a vocational training track in parallel to new academic programs and a training hotel, to be subsumed into a larger entity - the Bethlehem University Tourism Institute (BUTI). This project is funded by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the Saudi Fund for Development and implemented by UNRWA.

Groundbreaking ceremony of Bethlehem University Tourism Institute will take place on Tuesday, 25 September 2018, in the presence of donors, dignitaries, Faculty and Staff of the Institute of Hotel Management.
