7- Yes. In the dormitories there's a shared kitchen, TV room (only in the ground floors) and a study room (in each floor). In the kitchen there are: 1 microwave oven, 3 cookers with electricity, 2 washbasins. There’re no flatwares or saucepans which you should have your own. (You can buy saucepans to a cheap price from the supermarket in the campus. But there're no flatware sold there, maybe you can bring or ask to the returning Erasmus students from our Facebook page). There is also laundry room in which there are 2 washing machines (free), 2 drying machines (free) and 3 irons (free). Please note that you should have your own detergent for these. In the TV room there is 1 TV (free and open for 24 hours), sofa sets, study table and chairs. Study rooms are open for 7/24 and there are also sofa sets.
8- No. You don't have to bring anything for your bed. They are all clean and waiting for you to be slept on. Each week you can change your bed sheets yourself by asking to your dormitory building for the clean ones.
9- Do not worry about that! Incoming exchange/degree foreign students are always given priority for the dormitories at Sabanci University. Before your arrival you'll receive our confirmation e-mail about your accommodation in dormitories.
11- No. The payments are to be done directly in person by cash in the bank branch mentioned above. Swift payment is not acceptable. The reason for that is a little bit complicated but the easiest way to explain is that the university finance department constitutes a debt on each student through his/her Student ID Number for the dormitory payment. When the student goes to the bank, he/she just gives the student ID number and closes the debt. Therefore the system is based on closing the debt rather than making a payment. We hope that you and your families will understand this. Sorry for any inconvenience, yet the system absolutely works in this way.
15- No. According to the university rules, all dormitory rooms are single-sex. In the public areas such as study room or TV room, mixed-sex students are of course allowed for 7/24. However, in the dormitory rooms students are only allowed to host their opposite-sex friends until 11:00 pm.
16- Please inform your dorm officer about your check-out date at least 7 days prior to your departure for your home country. Please keep in mind that back payment process takes a little bit time among the departments of finance, dormitories and bank. Therefore, in order to get back your money on time without having any problem before your departure, please give your check-out dates to the dormitories as earlier as you can. From 2 days prior to your departure you can go to the bank with your passport and get back your money by cash.
11- Please do not forget to leave your room keys to the related dorm officer in charge of your building. In case you’ll leave out of the working hours (very early in the morning or at night) please again find the person in charge of that building. Keep in mind that there is always someone in charge for 24 hours in your building.
