We have homes on more than 260 campuses worldwide where Jewish students can chill and connect. Our Chasidic-run houses nurture social, educational and spiritual enlightenment. No judgement, just joy.

Our Mission

To support the vibrancy and growth of Jewish student life on campus through the sustainability and success of Chabad Houses worldwide.

Our Vision

Inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, we champion robust Jewish life and learning on college campuses around the world.

Our Promise

To transform Jewish lives and campus communities from what they are today, to what they can be tomorrow. Everything we do is in the service and support of others towards this end—and, we are all in this together.

Chabad on Campus History


In the early 1950s, Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem M. Schneerson reaches out to college campuses, sending rabbinical students to serve as a resource.


Chabad opens its first campus center at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA). Every Jewish student is welcomed, regardless of their background or observance level.


Chabad Houses serve as a home away from home on 256 college campuses around the world. Between these houses and nearby Chabad centers, students experience the joys of being Jewish at more than 500 colleges.

Hertog Study

Evidence of Inclusiveness
Our home is truly open to all Jewish students. A groundbreaking study on our role at American college campuses found that almost 90 percent of our participants do not come from Orthodox homes. It’s not just our opinion. It’s science.

Chabad House Effect

No Place Like Home
Chabad Houses are hot, and getting hotter. More than 30 percent of Jewish college students flock to our hubs on hundreds of campuses throughout the world. These campuses are home to more than 75 percent of today’s college-aged youth.
