In response to Turkey's need for high quality institutions of higher education, the Organ Transplant and Burns Treatment Foundation, which has been in operation since 1980, made the decision to turn its existing complexes into a university. In 1993, procedures were begun to establish Baskent University, with the aid of the Haberal Educational Foundation. In accordance with Article 3961 of the Legal Code, the University was officially founded on January 13, 1994. 

The main objective is to build an academic institution that will ultimately be a full-fledged and internationally prominent university. In the 1995-1996 academic year, Baskent University moved to its new Campus at Baglica, located 20 km. west of the center of Ankara, on the main highway to Eskisehir. 

The language of education at Baskent University is Turkish, in all but the English Language Department and the Department of American Culture and Literature. The English Language Department offers instruction in academic and occupational English, which is a mandatory part of the curriculum. The aim of the University is to educate a generation of young people who have incorporated into their lives cultural and historical values. The graduates are successful in the professional and business world, and are open to competition. They are sensitive to national and international issues, are dynamic and inquisitive, and are knowledgeable in the areas of health,humanities, environment, industry, trade, and technology. Currently, the university's enrolment includes 806 associate students, 7,535 undergraduate students and 831 graduate students.

At Ankara, there are many universities just like Baskent University. So our city is full of students and so nice for living as student. You can find several places just for students.

The weather is approximately 30°C here in July.

Ankara is well connected by a good public transport network system. Private and public bus operators compete for your patronage and there are the 'dolmus' minibus transport providers that offer rapid tranfers and get you to your connection points. The underground subway 'Metro' is highly efficient which runs between outer suburbs and the interstate bus terminal 'ASTI'. Taxis are readily available and are probably the best way to get to your destination, relatively inexpensive for the time poor traveller

For tourists, Ankara’s public transit system, particularly the public bus network, can be difficult to figure out, because maps are rare and all information is in Turkish. Nor is there any access provided for disabled travellers in any form of public transport. Buses and metros tend to be very crowded during rush hours, especially on Mondays and Fridays.

If you know the city well, public transportation, especially the metro, is an ideal, easy, quick and cheap way to get around particularly for longer distances. For shorter distances taxis are an easy, quick and cheap way to get around.

By bus

There are two types of public buses in Ankara; those run by the Ankara Municipality named Ankara Belediye Otobusleri (EGO) and those run by a private corporation named Ankara Ozel Halk Otobusleri (OHO). You can differentiate these two types by their colors. EGO-run buses are white and blue while OHO-run buses are blue. Both types of these public buses use the same bus network and bus stops.

Ankara Municipal Buses

The Ankara Municipal Buses, named Ankara Belediye Otobusleri (EGO), consists of an extensive and dense bus network, and is owned and operated by the Ankara Municipality.

Payment system for municipal buses is based on multi-use magnetic cards which is also used for the metro; starting from the smallest available which is the 2-unit cards which cost 3.50 TL, 3-unit cards which cost 5.25 TL, 5-unit cards which cost 8.75 TL, 10-unit cards which cost 17.50 TL and 20-unit cards which cost 35.00 TL [1].  For Smart cards and multi-ride magnetic cards - up to 2 transfers have been allowed within the time period of 75 minutes.A cost of 0,67 kurus will be deducted for each transfer.There will be no charge for transfers on discount cards. Free transfers can be done within 75 minutes. The magnetic cards cannot be purchased in buses and have to be purchased beforehand at kiosks and metro stations.

Unfortunately, no stops and maps are displayed in the buses and bus stops nor announced by voice in the buses. However, there is a Turkish web site which can be used to plan bus trips ahead of time. The site can be partially translated using Google translator. The site is : [2]

Ankara Non-Municipal Public Buses

The Ankara Non-Municipal Public Buses, Ankara Ozel Halk Otobusleri (OHO), consists of an extensive and dense bus network, operated by a private corporation.

Unfortunately, no stops and maps are displayed in the buses and bus stops nor announced by voice in the buses.


Dolmus are private run minibuses. They are as common as buses and run on their specific routes. Guven Park at Kizilay Square is the main stop of dolmus's, running all sides of central Ankara. You can get in and out anywhere on their route, and they stop the same way you catch a taxi with your hand. The prices range depending on your departure point and destination, but typically not more than a two to three liras.
