Toros University (Turkish:Toros Üniversitesi) is a private university, founded by a foundation (Turkish: vakıf). It is located in Mersin; a city on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey, famous for Turkey's largest seaport.


The university is named after the Toros Mountains (Turkish: Toros Dağları), a mountain complex in southern Turkey, separating the Mediterranean coastal region from the central Anatolian Plateau.

Toros University is one of the two private universities in Mersin Province along with Çağ University. Mersin also has two public universities: Mersin University and Tarsus University.


Toros University was officially founded on July 23, 2009 by the Mersin Education Foundation (Turkish: Mersin Eğitim Vakfı), an active educational foundation which was founded in 1979 in Mersin by a group of idealistic teachers who aimed to provide educational services.

Toros University accepted its first students for the academic year of 2009–2010.


Toros University has five campuses: Bahçelievler, 45 Evler, Uray, Mezitli and 50.Yıl campuses.
