- Cappadocia Campuses
Cappadocia University attaches utmost importance to the efficient use of local resources, and directs its own resources to protect the historical and cultural texture and the environment. The historical buildings of our University that have been taken over by allocation, grant or lease have been restored and refunctioned for teaching. The Cappadocia Vocational College was established in Mustafapaşa with an open campus system.
The Mustafapaşa campus of Cappadocia University has evolved through the use of existing structures in the town, and new building are constructed only when necessary. In line with this objective, Mustafapaşa campus is structured as a “wide and open campus”.
The Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, the Graduate School and some departments of Cappadocia Vocational College are located on the Mustafapaşa campus. The brand-new Cappadocia University building in Mustafapaşa was named after Oktay Sinanoğlu (1935–2015), as a modest symbol of respect, for his promotion of the relationship between “universal science production” and “education based on the mother tongue”. The Oktay Sinanoglu building is now home to the Faculty of Humanities.
The health programs of Cappadocia University are provided at the Ürgüp Campus, which is one of the most notable architectural stonework structures in the region. Within the campus, we have 18 laboratories, 22 classrooms, a conference hall and numerous meeting rooms.
We also have accommodation for our students, and our academic and administrative staff in Ürgüp. Güzelgöz Mansion – a significant example of Cappadocian cultural heritage in the center of Ürgüp – is to be restored and transformed into the Physical Therapy and Wellness Center.
