Dormitory Application, Registration, Payment Dates and Methods

Dormitory Applications

Please click for your dorm application.

In order for your application to be considered, you must pay your security deposit (500 TL) in the same semester.

When you click the aforementioned link, you will be prompted to enter your “username” on the displayed screen;

  • If you are a Turkish citizen, your “Username” is your “TR Identity Number.
  • If you are an international student, your “Username” is either your “Foreign Identification Number”, if available, or your “Student Number”. If your foreign identification number has not been issued, or if you have not provided your foreign identification number to the University, your username is the combination of your student number and your year of birth. (i.e.: S00XXXX1996)

There are two different systems in dormitory applications: Annual Registration and Semester Registration. Students may complete their dormitory applications, choosing their preferred system.

Annual Registration System

  • Provides priority to students in room assignments,
  • Provides warranty to stay in the same room throughout the year,

Students are required to pay 1.500 TL for Annual Registration.The Annual Registration Fee of 1,500TL is offset with  the Spring semester housing fees. Students who decide not to stay in the OzU dormitories during the Spring semester are not refunded for the Annual Registration Fee they paid.

The Annual Registration Fee of 1500 TL is collected at the beginning of each academic year during dormitory applications. You may pay your Annual Registration Fee in cash at Fibabank branches between the dates announced by Accommadation Services by providing your “Student Number” or “Foreign Identification Number”.

The Annual Registration Fee and security deposit are   two separate fees . Students who choose the Annual Registration option must pay 2000TL in total, including the Annual Registration Fee of 1,500TL and the security deposit of 500 TL, provided that they have not paid any security deposit before.

Semester Registration:

Students who choose the Semester Registration option are assigned a room after students who choose the Annual Registration option are assigned theirs. Students who choose Semester Registration must vacate their rooms and check out at the end of the Fall semester. Such students must submit a new application via SIS to stay in the dormitories during the Spring semester.

Students who choose the Semester Registration option must pay the security deposit of 500 TL, provided that they have not paid any security deposit before.

Your dormitory application is denied or considered invalid in the following situations:

  • Failure to make the security deposit for the respective application period.
  • Providing incomplete information on the application form,

 Security Deposit Payments:

You may pay your Advantage Registration fee in cash at FIBABANK branches between the dates announced by Accommodation Services by providing your “Student Number” or “Foreign Identification Number” for the respective application period. Such students must submit a new dormitory application and specify their room preferences via the online system.

The security deposit is a one-time payment. As long as you study at Özyeğin University and continue to stay in the OzU dormitories, you do not need to pay the security deposit again, unless you previously claimed a refund for your security deposit. However, in the event that the amount of security deposit is increased, you will only need to pay the difference between the security deposit you previously paid and the new security deposit.
