Uskudar American Academy is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Considering the infamous traffic jams of Istanbul, we would advise you to book hotels near our school.
There are 2 different options for accommodation during TIMUN:
Designated Conference Hotels (special TIMUN prices, free shuttle service to and from our school)
Hotels of Your Own Choice
1. Designated Conference Hotels
Each year we visit a couple of local hotels and arrange a special TIMUN price. These hotels fit different budgets. During the conference days, TIMUN will be offering free shuttle service to and from the conference campus at the beginning and at the end of each day.
The designated hotels will be announced from this page as soon as they are determined.
2. Hotels of Your Own Choice
It is possible to stay at a hotel of your own choice, and this is done by several schools every year. Public transport in Istanbul is efficient, yet you must consider traffic jams while planning your schedule. It is also possible to hire a minibus from AS-KOOP for your group. Remember that Istanbul is a very large city. If you have any concerns about the means of transport, send us an email and we will offer some practical advice.
Once you have made a booking, please remember to email us the full address, phone number and website of the hotel that you have chosen as it is critical for us to keep track of your accommodation details.
If you have any inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
