Housing for Erasmus, Exchange, Mevlana and Special Students
Erasmus, Exchange, Mevlana and Special Students attending Boğaziçi University have the options of staying in the Superdorm or finding housing off-campus.
Space is limited, so apply to the Superdorm at the same time as you apply for the academic program. Once you have received word that you have been accepted to the academic program, confirm your place in the Superdorm by making the full payment for the semester for which you have registered.

Istanbul is a city of apartments, so it is possible to find a place to call your own somewhere in the city.

Where to Look
Neighborhoods worth considering:
The European Side
There are several beautiful towns along the Bosporus that have been continually inhabited for thousands of years. I think these are overlooked by students because of the hill between them and the university. This can be managed, however, by taking a free shuttle bus that leaves every morning from Bebek at 9:00 that goes up the hill to campus. Free to university personnel and students.
The Asian Side

Unlike the Superdorm, we have no dialog with them and simply list them as a means of helping students find suitable housing. As a public university, we are unable to list private companies on our website. Please search the Internet using the terms like "Istanbul Erasmus apartments," "Istanbul student housing," and options with English will come up.
