How to get to Bogaziçi University

Transport from Istanbul Atatürk Airport to Bogaziçi University and to the Superdorm

By taxi (costs about 30 YTL / € 15 / $ 20 between 6:00 am and midnight, with a 50% increase after midnight). Taxis are available outside the airport terminal. The journey takes about 30-45 minutes.
By Havas (private shuttle buses from the airport to various parts of the city). You should take the one going to Akmerkez (a big shopping center not far from Bogaziçi). Havas buses leave the airport every two hours between 07:00 am and 23:00 pm. Departure times from Akmerkez to the airport are 05:00 am and every two hours between 06:00 am and 22:00 pm. The journey takes approximately 45 minutes. Ticket fee is 9.50 YTL / € 5. From Akmerkez, you can come by taxi (not more than 5 YTL / € 2.50) or by buses with numbers 559C, 43R, and 59R.

Buses: There are two types of buses, public and private. Public buses are red or green in color. These buses are plentiful for getting around Istanbul, but usually rather crowded. Public bus tickets are available from the white kiosks close to main bus stops. Private buses are blue in color. In private buses, you buy your ticket after you get on the bus. The ticket fares are the same for public and private buses. One ticket costs 1.3 YTL, which is approximately € 0.8. If you are coming to the Superdorm by bus, you need to get off at the bus stop called "Cengiz Topel," which is near to a roundabout on Nisbetiye Street (please see the map here), go down, turn left at the roundabout and pass the soccer field; at the end of it, you will see an entrance on the right. It will take you to the Superdorm.

Superdorm. The Superdorm is situated on the Uçaksavar Campus of the University. It takes 10 minutes on foot to get from the Superdorm to the South Campus (the main Campus) of the University where the seminar will be held. In order to get to the South Campus from the Superdorm, take Zincirlikuyu - Bebek Street, which means that you turn left once coming out of the Superdorm and walk straight ahead. After ten minutes walk, you will see the main entrance to Bogaziçi University. When you enter, take the route on the right and walk downhill. The venue for the seminar is on the fourth floor of the building called YADYOK.
