Aiming at the top in the areas of sports, our university is prepared to complete the sports complexes soon. These are a football pitch, a tennis court and a swimming pool.

Other activities[edit]

Every year, the university holds a traditional Spring Festival on May 16–18, which marks the meeting of natural beauty of our campus with social facilities. The festival has already turned out a carnival where all residents of Sakarya can take part and enjoy the culture and sport events. Many international projects help our school host a number of foreign students and researchers and let them get to know our cultural life and study our language enabling them to form close relationships with the Turkish society and manners.
