Since its establishment, the Bilkent University Psychological Counseling and Development Center has been providing support to Bilkent university students in a variety of ways, from holding seminars to offering individualized counseling.

During the current period, as students are self-isolating in their homes or dormitories, the Center has begun conducting individualized counseling sessions online, via Skype. Students who would like to receive counseling in this way are invited to contact the Center at pdgm@bilkent.edu.tr.


There are a number of ways in which the Bilkent University Library can provide service at a distance. In addition to its “Ask a Librarian” and email reference services, the library has an online chat service, which users can access to chat with reference librarians in real time.

To start a chat session, go to the library’s web page and click on the “Ask Us” icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. (You’ll be asked for your name and email address before the chat starts.) The librarians can offer help in finding sources about a topic and using library tools effectively, as well as answer questions about the library.

Online chat is available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both weekdays and weekends. If you try to start a chat session during those hours but are told that the service is offline, it means that the librarians are busy chatting with other users. If this happens, please refresh the page after 10 minutes and try again.

Outside of the hours indicated above, the library staff can still be contacted, either by email to reference@bilkent.edu.tr, or by means of the “Ask a Librarian” form accessible via the library’s web page.

If you have any questions about “Ask Us” service, please send an email to reference@bilkent.edu.tr
