Main Campus

Located close to the heart of central Philadelphia, our Main Campus pulses with vibrant energy thanks to numerous new building projects and the 11,000 students living on or around campus. Outside of class, students choose from a diverse range of activities on campus and in the surrounding city. Temple has more than 300 student organizations, Division I sporting events, and over 1,000 arts and music events on campus each year. Take the Broad Street line a few stops south to find yourself in the center of Philadelphia's thriving food and restaurant scene, shopping districts, museums, galleries and cultural venues. Proximity to downtown Philadelphia affords Temple students the excitement of a big city without giving up the close-knit feel of a traditional campus setting.
