"from tradition to the future!"

Our university was founded as the 13th university of Turkey in 1974 in Sivas which is a city of knowledge and lore.

For us, however, the foundation date of our university is not 1974, but the 1200s when madrasahs were established in Sivas.

We know that; universities are places where students are looking at the future with confidence and discovering new horizons.

They are the places of those who believe in free thought and lead the way for shaping tomorrow.

We intend to be a university always aimed at the future and prioritize knowledge and art.

Our university which has18 faculties, 5 schools, 14 vocational schools, 1 conservatory and 60 thousand students, is candidate to be one of the most important values of our region and our country.

With the social, cultural and sports facilities and education provided in our university, it is essential for us to be one of the most important universities of our country.

With the consciousness we borrow from the great expression of Necip Fazil, “If this orphan structure remains uncompleted in the hands of a master, Shame on apprentice who does not complete it” we aim to take our university to higher levels in science and mind.

eduroam (Education Roaming)

What is eduroam?

eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.

Where can I eduroam?

Having started in Europe, eduroam has gained momentum throughout the research and education community and is now available in over 100 territories.

eduroam is available in thousands of locations across over 100 countries worldwide. From campuses to coffee shops. Click here for an interactive map of countries where you can eduroam.

Is it safe?

eduroam is based on the most secure encryption and authentication standards in existence today. Its security by far exceeds typical commercial hotspots. Find out about eduroam security here.

How does eduroam work?

eduroam allows any user from an eduroam participating site to get network access at any institution connected to eduroam. Depending on local policies at the visited institutions, eduroam participants may also have additional resources at their disposal.

The user credentials are kept secure because eduroam does not share them with the site you’re visiting. Instead they are forwarded to the user’s home institution, where they can be verified and validated.

The system uses a network of servers run by the institutions, and the participating National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) to securely route these requests back to your home institute. All this happens seamlessly and virtually instantly – all thanks to eduroam!

How does eduroam work?

eduroam provides authenticated network access at any location where the service is enabled.

Each participating organisation offering network access to authenticated users is able to apply its own filtering policies as long as it is clearly informing users about the filtering rules.

For more information please visit the website of eduroam global and eduroam Türkiye.
