Achieving the sustainability goal of "healthy individuals" requires first and foremost the provision of basic needs for people, including their healthcare needs. There is a health center on the campus that provides free health services with two general practitioners, two psychotherapists, two dentists, and a nurse.

Our university offers scholarship opportunities to students in need to balance economic inequalities in line with the goal of eliminating education-based inequalities. A total of 237 students receive scholarships (education, need, transportation and food) from different institutions including Council of Higher Education, corresponding to 148.421,74 Euros.

The Center for Women and Family Studies at GTU (GTÜ KUAM) raises awareness through seminars and activities, while the Accessible GTU Unit carries out activities to make life easier for disabled individuals on campus.

At GTU, various studies are conducted both within the academic framework and within the university-industry collaboration framework to end poverty by taking poverty as a multidimensional concept beyond income poverty. In addition to articles and courses including the studies of our academics on social exclusion and poverty, our university contributes as a third party to a Horizon 2020 project, which involves interventions on energy poverty. GTU also provides technical support to projects aimed at strengthening the social inclusion of vulnerable groups and increasing their resilience in the face of earthquake disasters.
