About this Residence Hall

What is Temple Sponsored Housing?

Given the limited availability of on-campus, traditional housing, University Housing and Residential Life may enter into agreements with properties adjacent to campus that offer many of the same amenities and features that are traditional on-campus residence halls offer. University Housing and Residential Life has partnered with the Edge Avenue North complex to offer additional beds for its on-campus population. 

Front Desk Hours

  • Weekdays: 9:00am - 8:00pm
  • Saturday: 12:00pm - 4:00pm
  • Sunday: Closed

Temperature/Thermostat Control

Heat and A/C are controlled by individual units. Important: Low temperatues can cause pipes to freeze and burst. Avoid this by keeping windows closed and the heat on low at all times during the winter months.


  • Coin operated laundry facilities are located at the end of each hallway except for the first floor.
  • Visa cards are accepted as a form of payment.
  • Report laundry maintenance concerns by calling 800-927-9274.  Provide the location (Edge Avenue North), floor, and the machine number.


The length of time it takes for you to receive a package depends on the carrier.  Some carriers, such as UPS, deliver to a central location on campus. Packages are then sorted and transported to individual halls within 2-3 business days.  Other carriers, such as Amazon, deliver directly to each hall, reducing the length of time it takes for packages to arrive in-hall and be processed by front desk staff.

There is an anticipated 3% increase to the current housing rates for the 2018-2019 year.
