Graduate students that are enrolled at our university and entitled to accommodation are assigned to dormitory rooms in West Campus and Rumelifeneri Campus. Free shuttle transportation to and from Main Campus is available to KU members.
Please contact your program advisor for housing-related questions, and they will refer you to the appropriate resources.
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.
1. There is a list of districts that have strict limitations for foreigners. Those who stay in one of the listed restricted districts cannot apply for a residence permit, nor register their addresses. While this does not apply to those with a student residence permit, work permit or work permit exemption, we advise that you do not move to one of the listed districts to be on the safe side.
The list can be found on the Migration Office website. (Please note that the list is subject to change and can be updated periodically. You can consult 157 Foreigners Communication Center if you would like to confirm the latest list.)
2. When renting a flat, you must make a contract with the homeowner and obtain a notary-made rental agreement. For details on the matter, please check our Obtaining Official Documents page.
