Temple University attracts some of the most diverse, driven and motivated minds from across the nation and around the world. These students and faculty bring the university to life and fuel its palpable momentum in academics, athletics, research and the arts. Powering Temple's ascent are innovative approaches in admissions and affordability; a campus transformation; plentiful creative and research opportunities; rigorous academic programs; an indelible bond with the city of Philadelphia; and groundbreaking work in science, research and technology.
Temple is home to nearly 40,000 students, is the fifth-largest provider of professional education in the U.S., and offers more than 400 academic programs in 17 schools and colleges, on eight campuses, including locations in Japan and Italy.
More than 3,500 distinguished faculty; top art, business, dental, law and medical schools; five professional schools; and dozens of renowned programs make Temple an academic powerhouse. Students enjoy the advantages and atmosphere of a large urban, public research university with the individualized attention that is a result of its 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio.
The majority of freshmen students live on campus, where they are steps away from class, the TECH Center and the library, fitness and recreation facilities, dining options from cafes and dining halls to food trucks, and the many arts, cultural, sports and scholarly events that happen daily universitywide.
One of Temple's newest living and learning residences is 27-story Morgan Hall, which offers unparalleled views of the Philadelphia skyline. Because Temple is in the midst of a transformation, Morgan Hall is only one of several state-of-the-art facilities rising on the university's main campus. The new 250,000-square-foot Science Education and Research Center boosts student and faculty opportunities for discovery and innovation. Plans are also underway for a state-of-the-art, 21st-century library and the largest-ever quad in university history.
Temple's influence also extends around the globe, with long-standing campuses in Tokyo and Rome; programs in London, Beijing and other locations worldwide; 150 partnerships with international universities and more than 300,000 living alumni. Temple students on main campus now hail from more than 100 countries.
No matter their background, Temple students-called Owls-are drawn to the university's vibrant location in the heart of Philadelphia. The professional world is right outside their doors, where thousands of possibilities exist for hands-on learning and internships in business, healthcare, education, the arts and beyond.
By living and learning in an urban environment, Temple students are well-prepared for the real world. Employers laud Owls for their tenacity, teamwork and talent. Students also have access to an immense alumni network for mentoring, guidance, connections and job opportunities.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
