Temple Police are HARDCORE and in an area like Temple is in, it's necessary. I feel extremely safe walking around on campus except from the hours of 11pm-7am, when I'd prefer either to be in a large group or just not out at all. The exception to this is if you're studying at the tech or something, you can request a shuttle that will drop you off at your dorm or another location if it's between like 6pm-6am I think the hours are. Literally just don't be an idiot. All of the armed robberies that happen are usually off campus to a person who's walking alone at night, but on campus can be pretty sketchy too. Temple also offers walking escorts if you don't want to wait for the TU Flyer. All in all just don't be reckless!

Temple is a very unique school. Located in the northern half of Philadelphia, the offerings of the city are unparalleled. There is so much to explore and almost anything you could possibly want to do is just a subway ride away. The university itself is also quite nice. Temple has, for several years now, been constantly upgrading, renovating, and creating new buildings. The TECH Center is the largest computer lab of its kind in the country. Pearson and McGongile halls offer swimming pools, basketball and volleyball courts, boxing gyms, and martial arts clubs. Temple has a very strong international relationship with foreign universities and its own branch campuses. Many students are studying here from various countries and the study abroad program is extremely strong, with Temple's own campuses located in Rome and Tokyo. There are unlimited possibilities just waiting to be claimed and Temple offers something for every student.

I lived in James S. White Hall my freshman year of school. It was really nice compared to what you typically see in movies. It was a suite so we had our own bathroom and common area, which made it much more spacious and private than a communal setting. I was apart of the Resident Hall Association so I really got to see what the University wanted to do for Campus Housing. They were always planning social events and competitions between dormitories which was really interesting and fun to attend! As for pricing, when you break down how much you are paying per month it isn't worth the money even when you include the amenities (laundry, study rooms). Despite the pricing it is a great way to meet new friends that you'll have for the rest of your life.
