Residential Life

The residential life program at Robert College is designed for its students to develop socially, psychologically and academically in a safe and peaceful way. To this end, we work on building a community which is based on honesty, mutual respect, responsibility, positive interactions and collaboration, where young men and women are sensitive to and respect the rights, needs and property of others. During the years that they spend in RC’s residences, students develop their sharing, responsibility, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills. They acquire the skills to be able to make decisions for themselves, and they learn to distinguish between right and wrong.

To support the students social and cultural development along with their academics, various activities like trips to exhibitions and theaters are organized on weekends and weekdays. We have a weekend program for residential Prep students, to introduce them to the city. The convenient location of the school, between Ulus and Arnavutköy, allows students to access facilities in the neighborhood.  

The residences have 24/7 security. The entrances are equipped with identity card readers. Each residence has a Residence Head an Assistant Head and residence advisors - four in the boys’ residence and three full-time, one part-time in the girls’ residence - who are mostly former residential RC students who are currently attending the university. In addition, a Dean supervises the residential team. The residential staff on duty can be reached at any hour, seven days a week. The Health Center, open 24/7, is staffed with a doctor during work hours on weekdays, and paramedics and nurses at all times. At the campus entrance and exit there are security checks and a camera monitoring system. 

The parents of residential students can communicate with the school at any time. Each Friday parents are sent a bulletin that includes a weekly newsletter, photos and the cafeteria menu. Parents who need information can always contact the residence administrators or the Dean.
