OLLI at Temple University

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Temple University is a lifelong learning academy where people 50 years and older attend classes and pursue the joy of learning without the traditional academic requirements of tests and grades. All classes are held during the day in Center City Philadelphia.

OLLI at Temple is unique among educational programs in that 60% of its courses are “walk-in.” You do not have to inform the program that you plan to attend a walk-in course, nor do you have to stick with it the entire semester. The remaining 40% of our courses require registration in which regular attendance is expected.

Member Benefits

After paying the membership fee, $290 for the year (partial scholarships are available upon request), OLLI members may attend as many OLLI classes as they choose and borrow books from its lending library. Members may also attend OLLI organized trips, its Holiday Party and Annual Membership Meeting & Luncheon, each at an affordable cost.

Beyond Course Offerings

Besides regular courses, OLLI also offers its members other opportunities.

A Special Thanks

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Temple University's Center City Campus, is pleased to announce its recent gift of one million dollars from the Bernard Osher Foundation. This is the second such gift that OLLI at Temple has received from the Osher Foundation in four years. We are so delighted and grateful to the Osher Foundation for their ongoing support and encouragement. They have been extraordinarily generous and helpful to our program and we will be forever appreciative of Bernard and Barbro Osher and the wonderful staff of the foundation, in particular, Senior Program Officer David Blazevich and the President, Mary Bitterman.
