Your physical and mental health is vital to every aspect of your Temple experience.
While your time at Temple is exciting and inspiring, we know there are challenges that come with navigating campus life and the demands of college. We provide you with the support system you need to manage whatever you’re facing.
Our comprehensive network of counseling centers, health services and student-run clubs are available to help maintain the emotional, mental and physical health of all our students.
