Our Temple Owls

Research shows that living on campus positively impacts students' success in and out of the classroom.  Our mission in Student Affairs and within University Housing and Residential Life is to help and encourage students' self-exploration to define themselves and embrace learning about one's capabilities and how they fit into the world they live.  One of Temple's defining characteristics is in it's students' ability to work hard and persevere through the challenges they face.  Living on-campus provides student access to resources aimed at supporting their journey, especially during students' early college years. 

We believe our residential curricular approach and staffing support is second to none in guiding students and helping them reach their full potential.  We help students define who they are and what their passion is in life.
