1. “IYTE Yaşam Merkezi” which translates to “IYTE Life Center” in English is one of the best options for accommodation if you prefer to be close to Campus. It is a little far away from the city center but it is one of the best options for easier transportation to Campus. You can also accommodate here temporarly until you find a better option for yourselves. The capacity of the IYTE Yaşam Merkezi is very sufficient so there is no accommodation problem if you decide to stay there. You do not need to worry about it.
You can have an idea about what kind of place it is and learn about prices from official website of IYTE Yaşam merkezi with photos, which also has an english option.
2. Most of the incoming students prefer to rent a house together with their friends at the city center of Izmir (45 to 60 minutes from campus) or Urla which is a town approximately 20 minutes away from the campus. Our advice is to see the campus and the city center for yourselves and then to decide where you would like stay.
3.There may be students which are willling to have you as roommates at their houses in Izmir and Urla but this options is not precise, so you should also have a plan B. Relying on this option is risky. If you prefer this option, we can communicate with these people for you before your arrival and ask them if their offer is still available.
