Bilkent University offers graduate and undergraduate student housing on
campus, in twenty-six dormitory buildings accommodating more than 4,600
students. Advice and information about accommodation in dormitories
can be obtained from the Dormitories Administration Office. Admission to the university
does not automatically guarantee a space in the dormitories.
Applications for housing must be submitted online through Bildorm-Dormitories Application
according to the time table announced each year.
To be considered for a space in the dormitories, or other Bilkent
University identified housing after the dormitories are filled,
students must meet all payment commitments (tuition and housing) on time.
Dormitory openings will be assigned as they occur.
The dormitories are within walking distance of academic buildings and
provide a good environment where friendships can be made and social
needs met. Students learn the value of collective living
and the need to develop self-discipline. They are
ultimately responsible for their individual conduct, but on-hand support is continuously
provided to students by employees in each dormitory building.
Rooms are arranged for single, double, triple and quadruple
occupancies. Facilities within the dormitory complexes include central
heating, social and study areas, laundry and ironing rooms, kitchens and
All rooms are furnished and equipped with telephones and ethernet
connection. General cleaning
service is provided in
each dormitory, but students are responsible for keeping their rooms tidy.
Lavatories and showers are located on each floor. Students are required
to provide their own towels. Food may be purchased from campus grocery stores
or meals may be purchased at any of the restaurants or cafeterias on
campus. There are parking lots at the dormitories.
Students who bring in their own computers
are able to attach their hardware directly into the university campus
network from their dormitory rooms and have access to all network facilities.
Students may as well take advantage of wireless internet connection either in at
least one study room in each dormitory building or in their rooms, by means of free
routers obtainable from dormitory receptions, upon request.
