Temple University offers the option to tour Main Campus in person. Available on weekdays, our campus tours feature an outdoor walking tour with an Owl Ambassador.

On-campus tours are designed for prospective students only. If you have already applied and been admitted to Temple, please check TUportal for updates and information on opportunities for admitted students to visit campus.

Health & Safety

Temple follows the guidelines and restrictions put in place through local, state and federal governments, as well as guidance issued by public health organizations, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We are committed to providing a safe environment for everyone. All visitors must adhere to the university’s four public health pillars.

  • Required use of face coverings
  • Physical distancing by maintaining a six-foot distance between others
  • Washing your hands often 
  • Routinely monitoring your own health

Participants should bring their own face coverings. Anyone not wearing a face covering will be asked to leave the tour group. 

All visitors must follow Pennsylvania state travel advisories and out-of-state visitors should be aware, in advance, of any testing and/or quarantine expectations.

If you feel sick, please stay home and register for a campus tour on a later date. If you have questions about Temple’s health and safety guidelines for visitors, email askanowl@temple.edu. For more information, visit temple.edu/coronavirus.
