OVERVIEW

Afyonkarahisar may seem small and cold at first but it is a welcoming city, great for a student to live. It is not expensive to live in yet it provides all a student needs.

This lovely city is in the intersection point of all big cities so you can take a bus and visit cities (Istanbul,Ankara,Izmir to name a few) as you like, then come back to us fair quick.

Afyon is really cold in winter so you can drink our hot chocolates while watching it snow or go ski as you like. Make sure to bring thick clothes to make yourself warm!

Afyon is also hot in summer but that’s great because you can eat different kinds of ice-cream! It doesn’t have the blue waters you may swim in but don’t worry, since it is a city close to everywhere in Turkey, you can go and swim anywhere!

Our city is famous for the best Turkish bath you will ever experience! Also for, spicy meat “sujuk” and delicious dessert “lokum” –you may know it as “Turkish delight-.

Our LC is not that big but our motto is based on friendship so we eat, drink, study, work, play, laugh and have fun together! When you come here you will not find only friends but gain a family as well because that’s how we are!

There are two campuses: one main campus and another smaller one which medical faculty is located in.

Afyonkarahisar shares “Zafer Airport” with several other cities so if you can buy a ticket to this airport, your time spent on transportation would be really shortened.
