Gazi University is one of the few universities whose history dates back to the 1920s. Right after the declaration of the Turkish Republic, it was decided to establish an institute with Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and his friends’ initiative. This decision resulted in the establishment of the 'Secondary Teacher Training School and Civility Institute' in 1926. The institute started its educational activities in the building which is now used as the Rectorate Building. The architect of our building was Mimar Kemaleddin. In 1929, the name of the institute was changed to 'Gazi Secondary Teacher Training School and Civility Institute' and it served under this name for many years.

In 1976, it took the name 'Gazi Institute of Education'. In 1982, with the act numbered 2809, this institution was converted to Gazi University. As a matter of fact, this is the continuation of the tradition under a new name which has started with the Republic. Ankara Academy of Economics and Commercial Sciences, Ankara College of Technical Teachers, Ankara Girls' College of Technical Teachers also played an equal role in the formation of the tradition.

Ankara Academy of Economics and Commercial Sciences was already like a university when it was united with Gazi University. In those days, today’s departments of Faculty of Economics and Administrative, Faculty of Medicine, College of Dentistry and College of Pharmacology which would later be the College of Journalism and Public Relations whose name would later be changed to Faculty of Communication, carried out education depending upon the academy. Ankara Academy of State Engineering and Architecture was also a part of Gazi University. When it was first built, it had 9 faculties, 12 colleges and 4 institutes. However, the number of the units increased rapidly. Today, Gazi University, with its 15 faculties, 4 colleges, 9 vocational college, 35 research centers and 6 institutes carrying out educational and research activities, maintains its claim to be a higher education befitting to Gazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, from whom it got its name. Education is provided in the fields of Education, Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Engineering and Architecture, Economics and Administrative Sciences, Commutations, Science and Letters, Law and Fine Arts within the university. Being the national leader in terms of education faculties, Gazi University consists of Faculty of Industrial Arts, Gazi Education Faculty, Faculty of Vocational Education, Faculty of Technical Education, Faculty of Commerce and Faculty of Tourism Education. In addition to the students coming from all around the country, Gazi is the university that accepts the most students from abroad with over 1500 students from other nations including the Turkic states and their communities.

It not only meets the needs of its own academic staff but also trains academic staff for other universities with more than 5 thousand students studying in masters and PhD programmes. Gazi University carries out its education at different campuses. Having three campuses-Besevler, Emek and Maltepe in Ankara- Gazi shows the degree of importance it gives to education. With more than 50,000 students and over 3.000 academic staff, Gazi University demonstrates the standards of the world average in terms of the number of students per instructor. Gazi is one of the largest universities with its faculties from education to communication, fine arts to engineering, sports to forestry, medicine to pharmacy, dentistry to science and economics.

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

The city has a dense public bus network, a two-line subway called Ankara Metrosu and a single line suburban railway called Ankara Banliyo Treni.

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; card costs 5.00 Liras and for each use of bus or metro you pay 2.50. 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 1 lira 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.

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.

Payment system for non-municipal buses is with cash. The ticket, which is only a one-way ticket, is purchased in buses at a cost of 1.75 TL for the students.

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. The cost of the dolmus differs according to the line you are using. It is approximately 2.50-3.00 TL.

By train

Ankara Metro

The Ankara Metro, named Ankara Metrosu, consists of three (four, if you count Batikent-OSB Torekent as a separate line) metro lines, which are called Ankaray and Ankara Metro which is owned and operated by the Ankara Municipality [3].

The west-east light-rail line named Ankaray and the north-south heavy-rail Ankara Metro line are both mostly underground lines and intersect at Kizilay station.Currently,it is possible to go all stations with one payment.
