Spring Housing

In late November, the Office of University Housing and Residential Life offers new students the opportunity to participate in a housing selection process specifically for students looking to live on-campus for the spring semester.  Following the initial start of this process, the option for current returning students not living on-campus to select on-campus housing will shortly follow.

For Spring 2018, the following dates have been set for the Spring Housing Selection Process:

  • On Monday, November 27, 2017, our online housing system will open for new students (incoming freshman and transfer students) to select any open vacancies in our current housing inventory.  This process will remain open for new students until Sunday, December 31, 2017.
  • On Tuesday, January 9, 2018, new and returning students will need to contact the Office of University Housing and Residential Life at (215) 204-7184 (option #5) or e-mail us at housing@temple.edu for assistance in assigning students for the Spring 2018 semester.  Assignments will occur on a first-come, first-served basis based on housing deposit dates.


  • All newly admitted students can start the process of selecting their housing and meal plans on November 27.  Instructions for using the MyHousing system via the TUportal can be found by clicking here.


  • All newly admitted students should have received information about our spring housing selection process from Admissions.  Click here for those instructions.
  • Rates for on-campus accomodations can be found in the Housing and Dining Costs section of the housing website.  


New students living on campus participating in Spring 2018 Orientation on Friday, January 12, 2018 will be permitted to move-in to their Spring 2018 housing assignment on Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. 
International students arriving on Thursday, January 11, 2018 are encouraged to move-in at 12:00 p.m. as their Orientation Advising Sessions will start on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.
