Campus Living

Being on campus, in the thick of it all, is one of the most exciting parts of moving away to college. There are so many opportunities for cultural, recreational, social and academic growth on the widespread, metropolitan Temple campus. So it’s good to know where to get started, from which hall you’ll live in to what to pack to who can help you figure it all out.

Temple Universtiy offers many residence hall options for students.


Community Engagement

As a resident within our halls, you will experience different type of programs and events facilitated by the Resident Assistants (RAs), community council, peer mentors, Resident Coordinators (RCs), and our Resident Directors (RDs). 

Our community engagement model encompasses four dimensional areas of academic success, diversity & inclusion, civic engagement, and wellness. The purpose of these dimensions is to further develop life skills and introduce residents to campus and community resources while sustaining a healthy and vibrant residence hall.


Diversity and Inclusion

Inclusion Statement:

Residential Life promotes an environment for the exploration of differences in our residents’ identitites, values, beliefs, and backgrounds. We strive for members of our community to develop a conscious awareness  of self and others within diverse populations through the acceptance and inclusion of differences.


Leadership and Inclusivity Vision:

To prepare students and staff to be effective leaders in an increasingly global and diverse society.
