How can I arrive to Cappadocia University?

There are many ways to get to Cappadocia depending on where you’re coming from. Cappadocia has two airports Nevsehir Kapadokya and Kayseri Erkilet. By plane, it takes about 1 hr and 15 mins to fly from Istanbul. There are direct flights daily from Istanbul (Ataturk or Sabiha Gokcen) to either airport. Very reasonably priced airport shuttle bus services operate between both Cappadocia airports. If you have booked your accommodation the easiest solution is to ask your school or hotel to arrange an airport-shuttle pickup for you, though be aware that some hotels beef up the price of shuttle transfers ridiculously. You can also book directly with the shuttle-bus services. Several companies run nightly intercity bus from Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya, Adana, etc… to Cappadocia too.
