History of the University

Ýnönü University, named after the second President of Turkish Republic, Ýsmet Ýnönü, is one of the leading Institutions in the country. Due to both natural and industrial potential of the region, this University has been among those that are given priority by the government and private sector.

Malatya: the city where the University is located

Malatya, where our University is located, is a leader for its world-famous apricot fruit. Of the World dry-apricot production, 90 % originates from this region. The city is located at the Upper Firat river basin area of the Eastern Anatolian Region. The area had been inhabited since the Neolithic ages, mainly because of its geographic position at the crossroads of major trade routes; the famous Route of Kings and the Silk Road. It is a busy modern city in a huge fertile region with a major agricultural industry due to its rich water sources. It is a popular base from which Nemrut Dagi, one of the most famous touristic sites in Turkey, is within one day trip. Another interesting day trip is to Eski Malatya (Old Malatya), 12-km north of the modern city, which is a ruined Roman town with remains of some old city walls, mosques and caravanserais.


The University recognizes the special accommodation needs of international students. Here you find a place to call your own while you are in Eastern Anatolia. Students normally choose from one of two types of student housing: On-Campus Accommodation and Off-Campus Rental Accommodation where students have access to catered accommodation or self-catered accommodation, respectively.

Laboratories, Libraries and Computing Services

The university houses beautiful buildings with classrooms and laboratories that provide state of art presentations for teaching and quality research. Almost all classrooms are designed to provide state of art interactive presentations and data shows. The Internet Center provides free, fast and anonymous access with more than 500 dialups at the same time, the biggest in Turkey. All academic and administrative staff have free Internet connections from their offices.

Student Life

Our unique Campus is in complete green and provides a friendly environment for those enjoying jogging, walking or just resting. There are 7 tennis courts, 4 football fields (turf), an all facility gymnasium, and 3 volleyball-basketball courts all designed for day and night sport activities. There are 35 student activity organizations from Slope Parachuting to English Language Club.

Fine Arts and Performing Arts

The Fine and Performing Arts Collections at Ýnönü University Libraries supports the University's educational mission and, in particular, the research, curricular, and programmatic needs of the faculty and students in the College of Fine Arts. The Music/Fine Arts Librarian is available to assist faculty, staff and students, as well as the general public, with their research, and is available for individual or class library instruction by prior arrangement.


Inonu University is a devoted Institution for European Community Research and Development Programs such as The 6th Framework Program and participates in international education and training programs such as Socrates/Erasmus (2003-2007).
