Kadir Has University is located on the grounds of the Historical Tekel Cibali Works, which began operations in 1884 as the state tobacco depot and cigarette factory and continued to operate until the founding of the university, when the building was faithfully renovated and transformed into the main campus. Located on the shores of the Golden Horn in an area of Istanbul particularly rich in history, the main campus building, a recipient of the Europa Nostra Award, is ideally suited to the dynamics of today’s world as a center for research and education.
