Beersheba North Railway Station (Hebrew: תחנת הרכבת באר שבע צפון‎‎, Takhanat HaRakevet Be-er Sheva Tzafon) (also known as the University Train Station) is an Israel Railways station in Beersheba. It is a stop on the intercity line from Tel Aviv and the terminus of the Beersheba - Dimona spur.

The station is located on Haharoshet Street and links to the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev by Mexico Bridge, a covered pedestrian walkway.[citation needed] In 2015, another long pedestrian bridge is being built at the station to allow access to the new high-tech business park being constructed north of the station.

The station complex also includes a rail yard and freight terminal. Israel Railways also began constructing the first phase of a large rolling stock maintenance depot east of the passenger terminal in 2012.[citation needed]

History[edit]

After the closure of the old Turkish station and railroad south of the town in 1927, the Railway to Beersheba mainly served the phosphate and other mineral industries in the Negev. The first passenger train station at the site opened on March 29, 1956.[1] Between then and the opening of Beersheba Center in 2000 it was the only active railway station in Beersheba. In 2002, it was decided to move the passenger terminal at Beersheba North 350 meters northwards to a new building nearby the university and an additional island platform was built. [2] The new Beersheba North passenger terminal opened in 2005.
