New Student Affairs Building is Coming

Mar 9, 2015, 09:24
The Student Affairs building that started to be built in 2014 in our Ayazağa Campus with the aim of bringing together at a single central point all student centered units of our university, which has 5 separate campuses in İstanbul, will soon start giving service.

The center which is one of the most important steps of the campus rehabilitation work of our Rectorate aims at making student centered units easily accessible for all campuses. With the building built next to the ARI Gate which is the main entrance of Ayazağa Campus that is also close to the metro station exit, Dean of Students Office, Registrar’s Office, International Relations Office and Erasmus Office will be gathered under a single roof.

High level protection to the archive

While the offices of administrators and staff will be situated on the upper floor, student reception counters and archive will be on the lower floor. The center will also contain a training hall and a seminar hall. The building that will provide 1800 square meters usage area will provide great convenience during the busy registration periods. A spacious and functional environment will be presented to both the staff and the students who make use of this unit.

The new building carries importance in protecting the diplomas and documents in the archive, too. The building, in which a modern protection system with an alarm and gas extinguishment against fire and moisture will be utilized, will minimize risks.

‘We aim at our students’ comfortable use’

Our Rector Prof. Mehmet Karaca underlined that not having a student affairs based center is an important shortcoming of İTÜ and said, “Overcoming this deficit will relieve both our students and our staff working in these units.” Karaca, who noted that İTÜ is a physically large and populous university, said, “Units our students use frequently are scattered all over the campus. Moreover, they are more difficult to reach by our students coming from other campuses. It is both tiring and time-consuming... Removing the disordered and inaccessible structure will provide convenience.”
