Best Nest Program

The Best Nest Program is a new program for students considering off-campus living for fall 2023–spring 2024.

The Temple University Best Nest Program is a self-certification program for properties listed on the off-campus housing listing website that reside within the Temple patrol zone and meet criteria that the university has determined is important for students to consider including safety and security measures, facilities, and other policies and procedures related to being good neighbors. The off-campus housing listing website will identify Best Nest properties and includes tenant reviews for students to review.

Properties interested in applying for the Best Nest Program can do so by using the attached link to register.


Best Nest properties are 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 listed on Temple’s off-campus housing website and will be identified with either a cherry or a diamond badge depending on which criteria they meet.

Students can use the off-campus housing website ( to filter for Best Nest properties, and can also leave property and landlord reviews for other students to view.

Properties will be eligible to sign-up for the program by registering on the MyHousing portal and completing the Best Nest Program registration form.
