Boğaziçi University Superdorm

Boğaziçi University Superdorm, private dormitory located at the Boğaziçi University Uçaksavar Culture and Sports Facility. It was built by the Boğaziçi University Foundation, with the support of a number of people and institutions including the Vehbi Koç Foundation and Yapı Kredi Bank, before being transferred to the university.

Construction work began on the Superdorm in 1995 and the building was opened in the 1998-99 academic year. It was designed with the aim of creating a cozy living space, which differed from a classic student dormitory, with private rooms and common recreational rooms for students to socialize in.

The dormitory comprises five blocks, 127 apartments and 478 student rooms. The number of rooms in each apartment ranges from two to five and each room is single occupancy. The Superdorm also meets the basic needs of students with a small supermarket, a cafeteria and a laundry for washing, drying and ironing clothes. These services run independently of Superdorm management and are overseen by the university.
