A considerable number of new universities have recently been founded in Turkey due to various reasons. However, these universities have faced a number of problems arising from both their internal structure and dynamics and also social, cultural, and economic conditions of the area in which they have been founded. In this regard, the present study aimed at examining the problems the universities founded in Turkey since 2006 have been facing. This qualitative ‘case study’ was conducted with seven faculty members from different units of Karabuk University including faculty and vocational school. Data of the study were gathered via a semi-structured interview protocol that the researchers developed based on the related conceptual framework and expert opinions. Data were analyzed through both content and descriptive analysis. Results of the study revealed that participants of the current study categorized the problems of newly-founded universities under five dimensions of “the quality of education”, “physical facilities”, “social-cultural and academic activities”, “workload”, and “financial possibilities.”
