Smart Campus and Digital Transformation

Environmentally Compatible Sustainable Living Areas

A Smart And Green Campus

In addition to its quality education, Davutpaşa campus can be called a "Living Campus", with all its dynamics that not only support the individual development of students but also creates a spatial identity by separating itself from other places of its kind with its historical and natural assets, and the fact that it reflects all the vitality of the city as a science and culture center. In addition to all these, YTU also implements beautiful and functional applications in order to use the campus more effectively and efficiently. While aiming to create a unity with social living areas, a cultural center and educational areas in harmony with its environment and historical texture, it also includes the elements of being an environment-friendly, pedestrian-first barrier-free campus where green areas are protected, resource efficiency and sustainability principles are adopted, resulted in the development of a so-called ‘Living Campus.’ The creation of a sustainable campus was another target. A respectful approach to nature and people has been adopted in the environmental arrangements carried out with the understanding of a "Sustainable Campus" which is paying attention to ecological, social and economic dimensions; meticulous work has been carried out to protect the green areas in the campus and make them more qualified. Frameworks such as Turkey's Zero Waste Policy and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were taken into consideration, and as a result, all YTU campuses, especially Davutpaşa Campus, were turned into sustainable living areas.
