Pedestrian Priority

Near East University's commitment to prioritizing pedestrians reflects its dedication to upholding pedestrian rights and ensuring their safety within the context of the education and community services it offers in Northern Cyprus. Guided by its clear purpose, vision, and mission.


In line with Near East University's values, the university is committed to prioritizing the well-being and safety of pedestrians and fostering a culture of respect for pedestrian rights.


Near East University envisions a future where pedestrians are guaranteed safety and access on the university campus, and this vision extends to promoting a pedestrian-friendly culture in the wider community.


The university's mission is to create a secure and welcoming pedestrian environment. It achieves this through the following principles:

  • Respect for Pedestrian Rights: Near East University places great importance on preserving the safety and rights of pedestrians. Crosswalks, sidewalks, and pedestrian pathways are constructed to be safe and accessible for students and staff.
  • Pedestrian-Friendly Infrastructure: The university campus is designed to allow pedestrians to move and access facilities comfortably. Infrastructure elements such as pedestrian pathways, green spaces, and rest areas prioritize the comfort and safety of pedestrians.
  • Traffic Regulations: Near East University takes measures to regulate on-campus traffic and enforce speed limits. This helps enhance pedestrian safety.
  • Education and Awareness: The university provides education and raises awareness about pedestrian safety among students and staff. Pedestrians are educated on adhering to traffic rules and walking safely.

This commitment reflects the culture of Northern Cyprus, respecting pedestrians and prioritizing them, which is reflected on the university campus. Additionally, our pedestrian priority principles play a significant role in promoting respect for pedestrian rights and safe walking habits in the broader community.
