The Maltepe University dormitory consists of 14 different buildings which can accommodate nearly 700 students. The university’s campus is 15 minutes from Maltepe’s city centre. The dormitories have three storeys, consisting of two flats on either end of each floor with a studio flat in between. The normal flats have three rooms; a bedroom with a shared bath, a common area and a kitchen. One or two students at most live in each flat. In the studio flats, there are two rooms, a shared bath, common area and kitchen. Male and female students stay in separate buildings.
In order to enable the students to live in a safer environment, electronic gate and camera systems are installed in the entrance of the buildings.
Giving particular importance to our students’ comfort, all rooms have wall-to-wall carpeting, a bed, a wardrobe, a desk with a book shelf and a desk chair. Unlimited wireless internet connection is available in all rooms. In the living area situated in each flat there is a table and chair set, a fridge and kitchen unit, a bathroom with a shower cabin, a Hilton bathroom cabinet, and a hall stand for common use. Apart from the living and sleep areas, the student houses include study rooms which have computers with internet access, desks, drawing tables and a recreation area designed solely for student use. The cleaning of common areas is carried out every day by a professional team. Rubbish is collected and controlled by the directorship of student housing.
Pay-per-use laundry facilities are available for the students living in the dormitories. Students are free to use irons in their flats, but they can also utilize the ironing service of the laundry facilities for a small additional fee.
A central heating system is used in all student housing buildings.
The Marmara Education Village safety unit serves campus with a professional security team. The entrance doors of the student houses are opened with electronic cards encoded for each student. All entries and exits are monitored 24 hours a day using security cameras.
Marmara Education Village, where the student dormitories are located, provides students with a natural sports area set amongst the wooded hills which neighbour campus. The nature paths, Olympic sized swimming pool, sunbathing terrace, basketball and football fields, are available to all students. The outdoor and indoor tennis courts and fitness saloon can be used by students at a discount from the normal membership rate.
Our dining hall has a fully equipped kitchen and professional staff in accordance with hygienic measures. Our students can utilize the dining hall all year round by buying food coupons which they can redeem for meals whenever they’d like. Half (dinner only) and full (breakfast and dinner) meal plans are also available. Our cafeteria is designed in the service of our students with game equipment (pool, table football, etc.) and sitting areas where students can invite guests. The dormitory cafeteria also offers a delivery service to all students living on campus. Apart from the dining hall, on-campus cafeterias serving a variety of food are located in the buildings of every department.
