In 1963, the Lunenfeld-Kunin Residences for Visiting Scientists was built.  Given by the Samuel Lunenfeld Charitable Foundation and Reuben Kunin of Toronto, Canada, it was designed by architect Jacob Rechter.

In 1975, Europe House, a residence for visiting scientists, was given by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Government of Israel, Walter J. Baer-Halperine of Zurich and Alice van Buuren of Brussels.

In 1985, the Kennedy Residence for Visiting Students, given initially by Terence and Mathilda Kennedy of the UK.  The building was refurbished in 2000, and renamed the Michael Kern Building, in honor of a donor from Castle Rock, Colorado.

In 2004, the Ruthie and Samy Cohn Student Residence was fully refurbished.  The building previously belonged to the Jewish Agency and was a gift of donors from Brazil.

The Weizmann Institute is deeply grateful to its many friends around the globe for their longstanding and generous support.
