Accomodation & Residence Permit


As Istinye University, we do not have student dormitories.

However, we refer our students to some private dorms which offer discounted prices for our students.

Please contact the dormitories for further information.

You can also see more options on Discounted Dorms

If you do not prefer staying in a dorm, you may look for off-campus options. There are lots of apartments in Istanbul and if you can find a place that is near the public transportation, you can easily access to anywhere in Istanbul.

Please note that students are responsible for arranging their own accomodation.
