Throughout their academic life in Turkey, international students have a range of choices for fulfilling their accommodation needs. Students may stay in campus-based university dormitories, in-state dormitories operated by the KYK (Higher Education Credit and Hostels Institution), located at different points in the city, in private dormitories, or the city’s rented apartments.
State Dormitories and University Dormitories
For male and female students, almost all the state dormitories and university dormitories in Turkey are different. Since there are variable numbers of students staying in the halls, depending on the number of people staying in the room, rates may typically increase or decrease.
Any furniture that a student may need is accessible for students in the space and common areas. Dormitories are open to all students with wired / wireless Internet access. Some dorm rooms have their cafeteria, and breakfast and dinner are usually served here. There are also shared areas available for students, such as the TV lounge, study room and kitchen.
Monthly fees range from 215 TL to 340 TL for 2020 for dormitories run by KYK. University dormitory fees differ depending on each university and the physical characteristics of the accommodation space. By visiting the university’s web page, you can obtain the most accurate and up-to-date information on this topic.
Renting a House
For international students, another accommodation choice is to rent a home. In communities near universities, in particular, several students share a house with a few friends. In Turkey, you will have a lot of rental home choices that are increasingly expanding in terms of quality and amount of housing. Prices vary, of course, from city to city and according to the house’s location and characteristics.
However, you can be sure that you can find a suitable home in the city you go to, regardless of your budget. Houses in Turkey are generally in the form of an apartment. As well as 2 to 4 additional bedrooms, these apartments have a large living room.
There’s a balcony in most of the buildings. The kitchen is an independent part of the home. A central system or combi boiler provides the heating of the rooms. The average rental rates of a 90 square meter house will range from 600 TL-2,500 TL, based on the average rental rates per square meter of some provinces.
