How to load your BOUN ID card with money
There are three ways to do it:
1. At a Garanti Bank ATM
Go to Payments -> Other Payments -> University Payments -> Boğaziçi University -> BUCard, then enter your student number and the amount of funds.
2. In person at Garanti Bank
Garanti Bank has a branch on the South Campus. Tell them you would like to make a university payment to Boğaziçi University and add funds to your BUCard.
3. Online with Garanti Internet Banking
Go to Payments -> Institution -> University -> Boğaziçi University -> BUCard, then enter your student number and the amount of funds.
Problems loading money onto your card?
Go to the Garanti Bank on campus. They can tell you if there is a problem with how you are entering the information, or if there is a problem with the card itself. If there is a problem with the card, you will need to take it to the Student Affairs Office, which is located on the South Campus, as they are the office that issues them.
To use the library online system
1. Log in to the Boğaziçi University Library website
2. Enter your Student Library Number (Kütüphane/öğrenci No.) where it says: "Type your 14-digit Library barcode."
If you lose your Student ID Card
You can ask if anyone has turned it into the Lost and Found (located in the Office of Student Affairs) or apply for a new one from the Office of Student Affairs.
Directions to the Office of Student Affairs
The Office of Student Affairs is located on the entrance level of the Registrar's Office building. Go to the front door. Immediately turn right and go through the door there. In front of you will be a very long hallway. Go all the way to the end of the hallway and go through the doors.
The desk for ID cards is directly on your left. Tell them that you lost your ID card, "öğrenci kartımı kaybettım."
If it has not been turned in, then you will have to ask them to make a new one.
Please note: In order to make a payment for anything at a bank, you must have a Foreigner ID, which is given to you as part of the Residence Permit (it will be printed on the card). If you do not have a Foreigner ID number, you must either have a friend or roommate who has a Foreigner ID or who is a Turkish citizen make the payment for you, or you can come to our office and ask for help.
