Social and Cultural Activities

Social life of students at the Near East University is not just structured around clubs and daily organised activities; it goes further and takes the form of colourful and proactive conferences and symposiums. They are communal and expanded to cover a wide spectrum of knowledge-developing facilities as well. The conferences and symposiums organized are events aiming to cover many disciplines such as cultural issues, engineering, architecture, law, sports, economy, and so on. So far, the Near East University has organised more then ten international conferences and hosted over 5000 subject specialists, experts and professionals from over 100 different nations. These conferences and symposiums are aimed at the students, people related to fields of activities, and the general public with a view to improve and enlighten their knowledge and awareness. The usual venue is the Ataturk Cultural and Congress Complex situated on the university campus which stands as the main centre for such activities. The complex has 14 fully equipped amphitheatres and one Congress Theatre.

The university gives great importance to improvement of the quality of education and bears the same policy to improve and decline cultural and sporting events and activities. The university is continually working for meeting the needs of students by arranging new events and activities every year. This year the university has organized a record number of conferences, seminars, exhibitions, theatres, concerts and has shown many films.

The university provides its students with extensive academic study opportunities and contributes to their social life by organizing concerts, theatres, competitions and various cultural and sporting activities all of which are free of charge, and are also open to public on some occasions.
