On the serene campus of Sabancı University, which is located far from the bustling city, students find facilities to meet all of their daily needs.
Sabancı is a university with the highest student-housing rate in Turkey. Advantage of living on campus is the ability to attend group-study sessions and take part in club activities without spending a lot of time commuting. Other advantages to living in housing facilities are the various amenities and the reasonable prices. All dormitory rooms have showers and baths, wardrobes, and private telephones, as well as internet connections for all students. No curfews or "lights-out" policies are enforced.

In the application form, students must indicate their accommodation preferences, especially if they want to stay on campus. In this respect the International Office will do its best to accommodate all students. However capacity is limited. Priority will be given to students who apply on time (before the application deadline). Dorm rooms, which accommodate 2 students, are equipped with showers, closets, and personal telephones. Automatic washing machines, driers and irons are for free in the laundry rooms in the dorm buildings. A private cleaning staff ensures that the housings and all shared common spaces maintain a high level of hygiene. Due to University regulations, female and male students cannot stay in the same room.
