Suite 100, Sullivan Hall
Your degree from Temple comes with an automatic lifetime membership in the Temple University Alumni Association (TUAA). TUAA will serve as your link to Temple whether you have just graduated or been away from the university for years.
Founded in 1927, TUAA represents Temple University's 245,000 living alumni and is the umbrella organization for the 17 school and college alumni associations, the Young Alumni, and all other constituent alumni groups and regional clubs. The TUAA Board is composed of a representative from each school and college alumni association, directors-at-large, national directors, and faculty and student representatives.
TUAA represents the alumni voice in university affairs. Board members serve on key university committees and on the Board of Trustees. The organization also contributes to projects that improve student life on campus and spearheads programs that allow alumni volunteers to assist current students and the surrounding community.
Located on the first floor of Sullivan Hall within the Office of Institutional Advancement, the administrative offices of TUAA and the university's Office of Alumni Relations are open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The staff coordinates a variety of events and programs such as Alumni Weekend and Founder's Celebration, reunions for classes and shared interest groups, Senior Scholars, Temple on the Road, young alumni activities, student alumni association activities, and the regional clubs program. Numerous benefits such as discounted auto/homeowners' insurance, a travel program, access to campus recreation, and technical and library facilities are available to alumni through the TUAA.
After graduation, be sure to keep the university informed of changes in your address or occupation by calling 215-204-7521 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. And don't forget to join the online community at myowlspace.com.
There are six Temple University Bookstore locations. Each store stocks all required books and supplies for the campus it serves. In order to maximize the number of used books available to students, the bookstore buys back from students books at the highest possible prices throughout the year. In addition to housing required course materials, all stores feature clothing, souvenirs, and giftware imprinted with the Temple name. Graduation rings can be ordered at any time. Academic regalia are available in the months preceding graduation.
The Main Campus store features the Book Corner, where non-required books, including best-sellers, Temple authors, literature, reference, and bargain books are available. Any book not on hand can be special ordered.
You will also find a large selection of magazines, snacks, soft drinks, greeting cards, gift-wrap, posters, and health and beauty aids.
During the first weeks of classes, store hours are extended at all locations. See signs posted at each location for specific hours during rush periods and semester breaks.

Campus Safety Services is a multi-faceted department that is committed to serving the students, faculty, employees, visitors, families and vendors, who work for, study at and visit our campuses. The department services a diverse community, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The two divisions are Police Officers and Security Officers. The Campus Police division currently has 124 campus police officers who patrol our area campuses by foot, by bike and in patrol cars. They are police professionals who receive state-mandated training at an accredited police academy. The Security division officers work inside various buildings, checking IDs and assisting staff and visitors.
During the academic year, members of the Temple Community are free to use the Owl loop service that provides shuttle service on the Main Campus from dusk to dawn.
The department also offers a variety of Crime Prevention programs, including self-defense, street smarts, and big-city living programs. For further information call 215-204-5870.
Our Annual Security Report is available on our web site.
Office of Parking Services
1755 North 13th Street
Temple University has eight (8) surface parking areas and two (2) parking garages on the Main Campus. Parking areas are also available at Ambler, Tyler and the Health Sciences campuses. Temple University Center City (TUCC) has negotiated parking discounts with nearby parking garages.
Debit card parking permits you to park in an assigned area when space is available. A hangtag/decal must be purchased, and it is valid for one academic year (September through August). In addition, a minimum of twenty-five (25) parking entries must be purchased on your debit card at a cost of $128 (fifty  parking entries when entering after 3:00 PM). The rates are subject to change in the fall. Your hangtag/decal and your current Temple ID card are the mechanisms that control your entrance into the parking area or garage. Parkers may conveniently purchase additional parking entries at the Office of Parking Services, located on the lower level of the Student Center.
Note: Availability of areas is subject to change during summer and holidays and for a few special events. Having a parking hangtag/decal does not ensure space in a particular area.
Special parking is available for guaranteed access, students with disabilities, and motorcycles.
Inter/Intra Campus Bus Service:
In the evenings during the fall and spring semesters, students have the option of using the Owl Loop bus service on Main Campus. The service is free and operates from 5 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., Sunday through Saturday.
