Enjoy a rich student experience in an area defined by its green spaces, quirky eateries and strong college spirit
Named after the academic institution at its heart, Temple University is an exciting, student-centric area full of possibilities for adventure and discovery. Explore existing interests or pursue new passions at impressive campus facilities like the Geasey Field Sports Complex and Tomlinson Theater. Join your fellow students on Liacouras Walk for a pre-game pep rally, then deck yourself out in cherry and white before experiencing the electric atmosphere of a Temple Owls football game at the legendary Lincoln Financial Field.
Of course, life in this area doesn’t need to be high-octane all the time. In the summer, de-stress after class at Beury Beach, a grassy expanse in the middle of campus that doubles as one of Temple’s best-loved student hangouts. Grab a good book and relax amongst the flowerbeds in Founder’s Garden, or jump on the subway and head to nearby Fairmount Park to experience the great outdoors on a grander scale. The Pearl Theater is your go-to venue for movie night - while Free Food and Fun Friday events at the Student Center Atrium are a great way to meet new friends.
Best of all, Temple University is known for its fantastic dining opportunities, ranging from the popular chains and cult restaurants that line Cecil B. Moore Avenue, to the iconic food trucks that can be found all over campus. Whether you opt for a healthy wrap from the Sexy Green Truck or a Mexican/Korean fusion creation from Wingo Taco, you’ll never run out of places to refuel between classes.
