Temple University is one of the safest places in Philadelphia. Temple police, city police, and security guards have been working around the clock to keep both Temple and the surrounding community safe. Security guards are posted at the front door of every residence hall and academic building, so if you are not a Temple student or staff member, you are not given access to the building.
If the police don't make you feel safe, then Temple has other safety features, such as the stadium lighting all around campus and the blue-light emergency call-boxes with a reaction time of 60 seconds. In addition to these features, the University also has something on campus that a lot of people call “Temple’s Big Brother"—the more than 200 cameras all over campus (even on top of buildings). So don't do anything on campus that you wouldn’t want recorded. In addition to security services, Temple University has one of the best health service centers for students in the city. Health services fees are included in your tuition, so if you're sick, do not hesitate to stop in and get checked out.
