Taşkışla Campus was built as a hospital for Mekteb-i Tibbiye-i Şahane, which translates to Military Medicine, between the years 1846-1852 by the English Architect William James Smith and his assistant, the Ottoman Master-Builder İstefan. The campus, used as a military base in 1860, was then passed over to Maarif (Ministry of Education) after the Republic was formed in 1923. However, in 1950, the İTÜ Rectorate, the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Civil Engineering was established, thus allowing education to commence. It is situated on 52.252 m2 of land.
Taşkışla Campus houses the Faculty of Architecture, with its Institute of Social Sciences, Department of Fine Arts and Continuing Education Center, in addition to the Faculty of Architecture library and dining hall. This city campus, which also houses the offices of İTÜ Development Foundation and the City Rectorate office, attracts people’s attention with its splendid building. There is a cable car between the Maçka and Taşkışla Campuses.
