American University Hillel serves one of the largest Jewish populations of any private university in the nation. We offer a diverse range of exciting programs that meet the social, cultural, religious and educational needs of our vibrant and diverse community.
We seek to engage every Jewish student, from those with strong Jewish backgrounds to those with none at all. Hillel helps students to explore and express their Jewish identities in ways that are personally meaningful to them, creating numerous entry points to Jewish life on campus and engaging students in Jewish life on their terms.
AU Hillel is housed in the Kay Spiritual Life Center, a dynamic interfaith center that offers students unique opportunities to learn and socialize alongside peers from a wide range of backgrounds.
