Best Nest Program
The Temple University Best Nest Program is a collection of resources that can be used to help students and their families make informed off-campus housing decisions within the patrol zone. Temple students can use the program to access a property visit inspection checklist, read and leave tenant reviews, and view rental listings that identify Best Nest properties.
To be included as a Best Nest property, a residence must be located within Temple’s patrol zone and meet certain safety, security and good neighbor criteria. Landlords who self-certify that they meet these criteria are then included in the rental listing section of the Best Nest website and receive either a cherry or a diamond badge depending on which criteria they meet.
The off-campus housing listing website will identify Best Nest properties and includes tenant reviews for students to review.
