The first step on your way to becoming a Student Union member is by paying the welfare allowance to the university, in which includes the Student Union membership fee is included. If you haven't requested to cancel this welfare fee as you were paying your tuition fees, you now count as a Student Union Member.
The second step which is most important for completing the process is signing up to the Student Union by registering in the Student Union website www.bgu4u.co.il. To register you need the username and password the university has given you.
If you've tried to sign up with the password but failed – this is why:
Students who have received a password as part of the process of opening a new user (whilst registering to the university or via the telephone operators) own a temporary password only. This password is used for signing up to courses and registering at the university only. After using your temporary password you have to change it to your own secret password. The Computation Helpdesk is in charge of creating passwords for students' use throughout the year, you must display an ID to get the new password. The helpdesk is located in building 58, room 003 and is active throughout the summer break. We recommend to new students who already live in Be'er Sheva, to visit the helpdesk before the beginning of the year.
