Another city within the city!


Being close to the center of a city like Istanbul with its social and cultural diversity is a significant advantage for Sabancı University students! However, none of our students need to venture outside the campus to meet their daily needs, socialize, and have fun. Our campus offers various social spaces catering to different needs, ranging from a performance center to a sports center, expansive green areas to a health center, a market to a cinema, and sports facilities to student clubs. With all these facilities, Sabancı University provides its students with an experience akin to another city within the city!
