Balıkesir Student Dormitory

Located at the entrance of Piyerloti Street, Balıkesir Dormitory housed revolutionary students between the 1960s and 1980s. It has suffered many attacks because of its central location. Niyazi Tekin, a revolutionary student, was killed in the dorm during a Grey Wolves raid in 1971. Being another critical location of the anti-fascist struggle, between 1974 and 1980, the building was used by the Eminönü District Governorate after the dorm was closed.

The building, known as Balıkesir Student Dormitory for many years, serves as a business center today, in 2021
