My experience at the dorms was wonderful. I am aware many exchange students find living quarters off campus and I was always grateful that I did not. By remaining in the dorms I learned more about the relationships and study habits of my fellow students and about Turkish social culture.
"The academic life I experienced at Bilkent University was positively incredible and my time spent there is priceless."
"I loved my time and experiences at Bilkent. I want very much to return as a graduate student to continue my research and work."

Elena Ailin Ma, Italy
Bocconi University
Department of Management
"I spent great times with other exchange students, especially because the ESN group of Bilkent worked really hard letting us doing a lot of different and nice experiences. They have created from the beginning a sense of family, and I am still glad for that. Thank you."

"Academic life profits from small classes and very pretentious and inspiring staff. On campus short ways are guaranteed, the excellent library is close to the main buildings, many restaurants and cafés ensure enjoyable breaks on reasonable prices. There are many student clubs for students interested in extracurricular activities.
Bilkent University offers the opportunities to challenge you academically and personally as well as to get to know and understand this highly interesting Turkish culture better."

"Although I didn’t spend much time with the rest of the exchange students, I had a really nice time in Ankara.
It was a lot better than I expected coming here."

Mannheim University, Germany
Department of Economics
"Social Life at Bilkent is just great: The huge campus with everything you need, Starbucks, coffee shops, restaurants and more. The people are mostly open minded and interested and more European than Europeans (in fact they are Europeans...). Especially the ESN team was great and supported us in everything."
