Kikar Ziv is a crossing with some shops around it (some neon signs around it). When coming from the Hof HaKarmel if you miss it you can always go back by taking any of the direct busses (17, 19, 76 or 77) to the campus. (Note: buses 76 and 77 do NOT go from the dorms to Ziv).
All night service from Merkazit Hof HaKarmel to the venue, continuing to the Technion: line 200.
Once you arrive on the campus - the bus crosses the campus gate and you get off at the first stop. There are signs to ATS Village II. Then go uphill (there is a steeper direct path or a wider winding road) - first you will see building #167 (Palm Springs Dormitory) - just go inside and go uphill to number 163, apartment 3 (or use the winding road around it). Asking for Senate Dorms may not give the results expected (tested in the field).
