Nostalgia - graduate from Laleli Campus_ Faculty of Letters
Sep 2019
It is one of the historic and main buildings in Istanbul in the old city. I am always proud of being a graduate! I have so many distinctive memories in both campuses in Beyazid. It feels me with the history and the stories of the buildings from their start. The campuses have limited access esp during registration and exam periods.

Ornate main gate, but campus closed to non-students
Apr 2019 • Solo
Istanbul University has five campuses; the main one (with its noteworthy gate) fronts on Beyazıt Square. The square was originally built by Constantine the Great as the Forum Tauri and was later enlarged by Theodosius the Great as the Forum of Theodosius during the Roman period. Roman and Byzantine ruins are still visible on the University campus grounds. During the Ottoman era, the Eski Saray (Old Palace) was located here, and later the headquarters of the Harbiye Nezareti (Ministry of War). The ornate Beyazıt Tower (85m) fire-watch tower is visible above the campus, now studded with telecommunications antennae. The University was founded as an institution of higher education named the Darülfünûn (House of Multiple Sciences) in 1846, and became Istanbul University in 1933. It's precursor was the Medrese (Islamic theological school) founded immediately after Mehmed II conquered Constantinople in 1453. The university has a teaching staff of 2,000 professors and associates and 4,000 assistants and younger staff. More than 60,000 undergraduate and 8,000 postgraduate students enroll in courses offered by Istanbul University every year. Unfortunately, entry onto the campus is restricted to students with an id.

Admittance for students only
Feb 2018 • Solo
The Gate to Istanbul University opens up at Beyazit Square. It is imposing, but if you are not a student, you can neither enter the park, nor the university buildings. The adjourning streets and alleys are full of bookshops and cafes. Students have determined the history of Beyazit Square. There were some tragic and bloody student revolts here in the 20th century, which have also found their way into Turkish literature. It is better to be aware of this fact, instead of walking around mindlessly.

Interesting wooden houses
Oct 2018 • Solo
The University campus is an interesting mix of ancient and modern palaces and idyllic wooden houses hiding behind them. Some have deteriorated to plain skeletons but there seems to be a project to renovate them to former glory. Students crowd the narrow lanes which offer restaurants and cafes with reasonable prices, there are also some bookshops. The new metro station Vezneciler and the Sulemaniye mosque are nearby.

One of the gates open near beyadid square and one could see the young crowd getting in and out of the main security gates. Outsiders who do do not have university passes cannot go inside.

HISTORY & MODERN CULTURE AT IT'S BEST
Dec 2016
We visited Istanbul during the month of December 2016 and stayed 6 nights at Enderun Hotel. Istanbul University was within a walking distance. (10 minutes). We spend couple hours and it was amazing, Historical buildings, grand architect and the atmosphere was fantastic. Being a student of one of the University in India for 4 years, I enjoyed talking to students passing by.
