Staying on campus is one of the most exciting components of Temple Pre-College! There are many opportunities for cultural, recreational, social and academic growth on the widespread, metropolitan Temple campus. Students will stay with high schoolers attending an array of Temple summer programs, giving them the chance to meet others with similar and differing backgrounds. Being a member within our community provides various opportunities for students to enhance their connection with Temple University and the city of Philadelphia. Residential students will participate in fun weekend activities and field trips in and around Philadelphia. Our programming model provides trips and activities targeted at building community, promoting academic success, wellness, and civic engagement opportunities.
Temple Pre-College Housing students will have 24/7 access to pre-college mentors and a resident manager who live in campus housing, and we maintain a 1:10 staff-to-student ratio. Additionally, all of the students that choose the residential experience will stay in a dormitory building designated specifically for minors on-campus. For any questions about safety and emergency procedures for residents of Temple University Housing, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com.

This fee is reasonably inclusive, covering housing, entertainment and supervisory services. Not covered by this fee are: food, laundry expenses, personal spending money ($50 per week recommended), and optional activities that may require extra fees.
Food is not included in the cost of housing. Any student who is enrolled in housing will be contacted about paying the additional minimum meal fee through the Diamond Dollars program, which is Temple's campus-based debit card solution that eliminates the need to carry cash. When you arrive on campus, you will be provided with an OWLcard ID, which will hold their Diamond Dollars funds.
