What I can see

The geometric shape of the large building creates a less obtrusive presence in an already suffocatingly and densely built neighbourhood. The building grid is based on the same octagonal shape as amphitheatres. The floors are served by a central staircase, with two more staircases at the edges of the building. In addition to the main building, the university includes 2 other listed buildings and a modern one (1998).

What I can't see

The university consists of 4 faculties (1. Economics, Business and International Studies, 2. Shipping and Industry, 3. Finance and Statistics, 4. Information and Communication Technologies) and 10 departments. Classes are held in 1 amphitheatre for 500 people, six for 250 people, 4 for 150 and 2 for 100. It also has a conference centre with 250 seats, 10 seminar rooms with 30 seats, 10 industrial technology workshops, 10 foreign language rooms, a library, a reading room, a refreshment room, a ceremonial room, a student lounge, professors’ and administrators’ offices, and an accountant’s office, with free spaces and exhibition spaces on the ground floor. During the construction works, antiquities were found, which were covered with sand for their better preservation.
