Upon arrival to campus, you will be welcomed by security. Please be prepared to present a picture ID (i.e. passport) and a copy of your acceptance letter. Please note that the security guards speak little to no English. However, they will guide you so you can proceed to the housing office to complete your check-in procedures. Please cooperate with security as they might need you to fill out a guest form and check-in your ID until you leave campus.
To make things a little faster you can also give them a slip that reads “YENİ ÖĞRENCİYİM” (I’m a new student).
Check-in and dorm/apartment key acquisitions for all students and non-student residents must be made at the main campus Housing Office located in S Building. Graduate students must also visit the main campus housing office to select their apartments from a draw (lottery style), sign their housing contracts, and pick up their apartment keys. Housing office personnel will assist graduate students in calling a taxi to take them to their off-campus apartment complex located within 5 minutes from the main campus.
Undergraduate students will be shown their rooms and will be able to check in on the premises right away.
All new students must arrive on the dates specified on the academic calendar, the pre-arrival guide, and the housing department’s website.
Upon arrival to campus, you will first be welcomed by security guards at the security gate of the main campus. Please be prepared to present a picture ID (i.e: passport) and a copy of your employment letter. Be informed, security guards speak little or no English, but they will guide you so you can proceed to the housing office to complete your check-in procedures. Please co-operate with the security guards as they might need you to fill out a guest form and check your ID in until you leave the campus.
To make things a little faster you can also give them a slip that reads “YENİ ÖĞRETİM ELEMANIYIM” (I’m a new faculty).
New faculty must visit and retrieve their apartment keys from the Housing Management office on main campus S Dorm. Arrangements such as your check-in date, location, and features of your residence will be communicated to you by Human Resources and your faculty office in advance. Please stay in touch with respective contacts from these offices about these matters until your arrival. Once you sign your housing paperwork and receive your keys, the housing personnel will assist you to call a taxi and be taken to your residence. Faculty housing is available both on and off-campus. Off-campus apartments (KU arranged ones) are only a few minutes from the main campus. For any questions, technical emergencies, or work requests you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
