I recently moved to Istanbul from the US (North Carolina to be exact) for work. My work is in Maslak, and I will be taking graduate classes at Bilgi University's Santral and Dolapdere campuses.
I am mostly looking to room with someone. My job requires a lot of travelling, and even when I am in Istanbul I will either be at school or studying or socializing out and about.
I see a lot of sketchy ads on Craigslist, so please let me know if you have any leads on a nice apartment on the European side, or easily accessible parts of Kadikoy or Uskudar. Fun fact: I hate tobacco but love animals!
