Living in Philadelphia
Philadelphia enriches the student experience here at Temple. Since many of our campuses, including Main Campus, are located in the city, it’s important for our students to educate themselves on what it means to live here by staying informed. Discovering resources in the area and getting to know the surrounding communities can help students adjust, learn and navigate the ins and outs of going to Temple and living in Philadelphia.
As a member of the Temple and North Philadelphia community, the university provides resources and support to help you acclimate to the neighborhood. One of the best resources are the residents who call North Philadelphia home. They know it better than anyone and provide suggestions on how to be a good neighbor.
Students can also find additional resources, support and videos on how to navigate city living. From apartment, bike and car safety to risk awareness and community living, our resources guide students on how to stay safe while getting the most out of living in Philadelphia.
